DAS: New York

DAM Implementation in the Digital Archive Case Study: Facing History and Ourselves. In 2012 Facing History and Ourselves set out to fundamentally change its management and use of its media collections. In the past four years, this educational non-profit has done just that. Starting with inaccessible legacy media, inconsistent distribution mechanisms, and media management challenges, Facing History has successfully digitized its legacy media, established policies for born digital production, implemented and rolled out a DAM, established a taxonomy, and integrated with a web content management system and an online video platform. In this presentation, Eva Radding from Facing History will talk about the process, challenges and value of this transformation and what it has meant to Facing History. Eva will be joined by Karl Facredyn from Orange Logic, the company behind Cortex, the DAM Facing History implemented. Karl will discuss some of the key challenges Orange Logic faced in meeting Facing History's requirements, how they navigated toward solutions and the lessons learned along the way.
AMIA's Digital Asset Symposium (DAS) brings together speakers and case studies from a broad range of industries and disciplines. Constantly evolving technology and business models bring about new opportunities, content strategies and workflows that demand new solutions for management, distribution, rights, preservation and beyond. DAS brings together a diverse group of experts addressing similar challenges to inspire and learn from each other, creating a unique and valuable experience for participants.
Clips and interviews from previous DAS events are available on the website.
