Digital Asset Management: Where to Start

A session at MCN 2012

  • Megan McGovern

Thursday 8th November, 2012

10:30am to 11:00am (PST)

The creation of a comprehensive digital asset management strategy for a museum can seem like a daunting or even impossible task, but it need not be. This paper will show how the creation of a comprehensive digital asset management policy document that outlines the administrative principles, policies, technical specifications, and operating guidelines for digital initiatives, can be accomplished in discrete, manageable tasks. Once created, such a document can form the backbone of an institution’s digital asset management strategy and provide the basis for an RFP for a digital asset management system. This paper proposes a model framework for institutional digital asset management plans, including standards, tasks, and decisions. Each of the elements in the framework is discussed in both general, best-practice terms and also specifically, presenting case studies and lessons learned from The Corning Museum of Glass.
