LIS 477 Digital Asset Management

The increasingly digital nature of the cultural heritage milieu is driving convergence of practice in LAMS (libraries, archives and museum). Before appropriate technological solutions can be determined and implemented, requirements need to be defined and convincing use cases developed. Students taking this course learn the theoretical underpinnings and the practical skills specific to ascertaining user requirements, management and access of digital resources, focusing on commonalities among practice in libraries, archives, and museums. Three areas crucial to the effective management of digital assets are emphasized: use-case analysis, technological skills, and project management.
