The distribution of images created by institutions has become bogged down in recent years between changing photographic technologies and the broader fears of violating copyright through said distribution. This presentation will outline the way that two different types of nonprofit organizations have streamlined their processes of image management through the adoption of a Digital Asset Management (DAM) system. Through the employment of a DAM, each organization was able to more efficiently retain and supplement critical rights information in the image files’ metadata and gain a better understanding of the copyright status of collection assets. The session will also address how implementation of a DAM to streamline image management can also help expand partnerships with external distributors of collection images, through drastically decreasing the amount of additional work for both parties.
