USE OF DAMS WITHIN A MUSEUM CONTEXT
During the course of digitization, data management and providing access online, the National Museum of Natural History (NMNH) uses many interconnected systems and services. One of the core components of NMNH’s digital workflows is the Smithsonian’s Digital Asset Management System (DAMS). The DAMS is a vital component of mass digitization project workflows as well as the centralized delivery of content. This talk will focus on how to maximize DAMS potential within a museum context, how they complement the functions of collections management systems, and key considerations when contemplating a DAMS implementation.
