  • In Pasteur’s own hand: The creation of a digital repository
    • Abstract: The Moody Medical Library’s Truman G. Blocker, Jr History of Medicine Collections (Blocker Collections) at the University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston, Texas, created a digital repository of carefully selected material from the private library of Louis Pasteur (1822–1895). This project was completed in an effort to dramatically improve user awareness and access to the personal and academic thoughts of one of the world’s most celebrated scientists. The Pasteur Collection held at the Blocker Collections contains books, offprints, prints, manuscripts and unpublished handwritten letters by Pasteur, which he maintained in his personal library. The digitised images feature the original document, the French transcription of the handwritten documents and notes, as well as the English translation of the letters and are available for viewing, downloading, and printing from both the Moody Medical Library and the Texas Digital Library websites. This project was funded in whole or part with Federal funds from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, under Contract No. HHSN-276-2011-00007-C with the Houston Academy of Medicine-Texas Medical Center Library. This paper will focus on the award application process, in-house workflows, outsourcing of translation and transcription and digital repository creation.

  • Taking a big data/NoSQL approach to digital asset management
    • Abstract: Providing easy, open access to assets and asset information across an organisation is a universal goal for digital asset management systems. When a digital asset management team is charged with delivering access to assets to various teams — all with different requirements — within an organisation where assets and information about the assets are in many different systems, many organisations turn to one of several traditional technology approaches. These all have drawbacks, however, and can be inflexible, complex and time-consuming. For such a complex assignment, a ‘big data’ approach can be taken, as the data being addressed have volume, variety and velocity (constant change). A new generation of database technology, NoSQL, allows a digital asset management team to take advantage of the big data approach and to create in a matter of weeks the actual database and data structures that will be used to power the application. Users of the application, including editorial, product development, management and asset curation teams, are able to see information across the organisation in a single interface and can make decisions based on asset information.

  • BFI National Archive: Digital workflow for the preservation of digital
           cinema packages
    • Abstract: This paper looks at the approach the British Film Institute (BFI) National Archive takes to preserving file-based content, utilising a combination of manual and semi-automated processes. A case study is presented, which looks at the preservation workflow for unencrypted digital cinema packages acquired through the BFI Film Fund for contemporary feature film production, often in advance of their theatrical release. The paper aims to place the approaches for long-term preservation of digital files in the context of evolving technologies implemented at the BFI’s National Archive Conservation Centre during a critical transition phase from analogue to digital workflows. It also discusses strategies for implementing automated workflow.

  • Fandom digitised: Establishing a digital collection of media fanzines at
           Texas A&M University
    • Abstract: This paper is designed to assist information professionals and others who wish to build collections of digitised publications or other materials. Archival institutions have for a number of years now been digitising physical collections for the purposes of both preservation and access and, in doing so, have encountered a number of technical and intellectual challenges. The author is a lead on such a project, one involving digitised media fanzines, currently under way at Texas A&M University. Issues encountered in the course of the project include copyright, the acquisition of creator permissions, sensitivity surrounding creator concerns, the construction of appropriate metadata and the provision of appropriate access to the collection. This project provides useful lessons learned — lessons that similar projects in the future may make use of in avoiding pitfalls, overcoming challenges and achieving success in preserving and making accessible digitised materials.

  • Metadata overhaul: Upgrading metadata in the University of Houston Digital
           Library
    • Abstract: This paper outlines the metadata audit/upgrade process conducted by members of the Metadata and Digitization Services Department at the University of Houston (UH) Libraries. It identifies key recommendations and highlights some of the new guidelines and workflows created for future UH Digital Library (UHDL) metadata creation. It is organised by the major steps in the upgrade process. First, the methodology used to gather data is discussed. Next, key recommendations are outlined. Strategies were formed for upgrading the legacy metadata in the UHDL. Details on these strategies follow a discussion on the recommendations. After the strategies, readers will find information on the new standard and workflow that was established to implement the recommendations into the future. Finally, the paper concludes with a brief discussion on the importance of maintaining metadata over time.

  • Practice papers A journey to enable digital end to end using DAM
    • Abstract: Digital asset management (DAM) systems continue to evolve with more features and functionality to store, search and publish digital content. But DAM systems do not have all the complete workflow abilities to create a seamless asset life cycle, handling all the disparate workflows and processes for photography. This paper looks at digital end-to-end (DETE) solutions for the photography life cycle. It examines the challenges, tools and standards to leverage DAM as a component of a DETE solution and what other complementary tools and processes companies must put in place to fully maximise a DETE initiative. The paper will explore metadata standards and leveraging metadata from camera through DAM. It will look at what collaboration, job tracking and reporting tools need to be part of the DAM initiative to achieve DETE solutions for photography.

  • Case studies Digital asset management system implementation at American
           Express Publishing
    • Abstract: This paper presents an analysis of the successful implementation of a new digital asset management (DAM) system at American Express Publishing (AEP). At AEP, the DAM team was faced with surprises when the system passed from a theoretical planning stage to the realities of a production workflow. Real-life demands on user groups and system functionality forced the DAM team to quickly adjust course multiple times. Their ability to find successful solutions proved the value of the team’s prior planning, education, and relationship building. Post roll-out, the team learned lessons about enabling a successfully operating system to meet the search and access needs of end users. Detailing the critical decisions and actions that led to that success, the paper defines important best practices applicable to system implementations at any enterprise.

  • Rights management: A focused approach
    • Abstract: At the recent Canada 3.0 media, entertainment and technology conference in Toronto, representatives of stakeholders in the media industry met to discuss issues around rights management. The consensus was that a number of business, market and technology challenges are driving interest in standardisation efforts. This paper draws on the insights and expertise of participants in these sessions to describe challenges of rights management and to discuss approaches to the development and use of standards. The primary sponsors of the efforts are in the USA and Canada and so the scope is North American.

  • Metadata management in the entertainment industry: A case study from the
           studio perspective
    • Abstract: A studio’s assets, the audio-visual representations of intellectual property, are the studio’s primary revenue source. Efficient monetisation of these assets is essential for profitability in a competitive marketplace. Metadata are the lynchpin of business intelligence and asset management. Definitive ownership of such metadata, with standards and governance recognised by all stakeholders throughout the content life cycle, is a critical issue facing organisations today. The prevalence of evolving technology, the rapid introduction of new platforms, the globalisation of the marketplace and the seemingly unquenchable demand for more content is resulting in extraordinary business and operations complexities.

  • Results from the DAM Foundation Salary Survey: Who they are, where they
           work, what they do and how they are paid
    • Abstract: In 2012, the Digital Asset Management (DAM) Foundation Human Resources and Talent Committee surveyed those who work in DAM, requesting demographic, employment, education and compensation information for the 2011 calendar year. This paper explores the results of the survey, and offers correlation sets for DAM workers by age, employer, functional organisation and educational background. Compensation for the overall profession and each correlation group is discussed. It is the mission of the DAM Foundation Human Resources and Talent Committee to make information available regarding emerging and maturing career paths in DAM and it is hoped this paper provides assistance to those wishing to expand the scholarship and discussion of the profession.

  • Turning information professionals into digital archivists for success in
           today’s world of digital asset management
    • Abstract: The subject of training is often undervalued, but it is the key to ‘physical to digital transformation’. The traditional library/archive is fast becoming a thing of the past, and the challenge is to redefine the librarian’s relevance and apply their information management experience to the new digital world. Today’s digital archivists must possess the special skill-set necessary to organise, preserve and protect assets, but they actually add value to those assets by creating a link between the assets and their use. Training for digital archivists must include managing documents and images (moving and still), audio digital archiving with intelligent metadata tagging, cataloguing, indexing, digital file formats and delivery. This paper describes how digital archivists can work smarter with smart workflow, the importance of metadata for digital assets, intelligent cataloguing and business taxonomy, and includes a case study of a project undertaken by LAC Group.

  • Advancing media asset value: From storage to operational decisions
    • Abstract: For entertainment and media (E&M) companies, digital photographs, videos, music and animations are among their more valuable and unique assets. Yet challenges related to media asset management (MAM) are keeping many studios and other E&M companies from harnessing the broader value of their digital assets. Today, MAM is about more than simply cataloguing, searching, storing and archiving. It is about balancing the portfolio of investments in strategic content across business units, channels and platforms, allowing MAM to become a key enabler of operational decision making.

  • Digitising a multi-language, multi-length audiovisual collection: The
           National Film Board of Canada experience
    • Abstract: The National Film Board of Canada (NFB) has developed an innovative and ingenious approach to digitising its multi-language and multi-length audiovisual collection. This major institutional undertaking required organisational changes and met with various technological challenges. NFB’s technological solutions were based on two very important concepts: that of work and of composition. In addition, the implementation of these concepts had to be cost-effective and with minimum impact on daily operations. The NFB has thus developed a series of tools, from metadata schema to delivery application, in order to facilitate the digitisation of its collection with as much automation as possible.

  • Determinants of distribution channel choice for online software licence
           purchases: A transaction cost perspective
    • Abstract: The objective of this paper is to test empirically a research model proposed in a previous paper, entitled ‘Determinants of distribution channel choice for online software licence purchases: A theoretical model’, which was published in the Journal of Digital Asset Management in 2008 (Vol. 4, No. 6). By casting the software distribution channel choice as a transaction cost analysis (TCA) problem, the research model that the authors proposed in that first paper aimed to uncover the reasons why, when purchasing a software licence for a product that is marketed using a ‘try-before-you-buy’ strategy, consumers would select the physical distribution channel not tied to any digital rights management (DRM) technologies (ie, CD-ROM) rather than the digital distribution channel that uses DRM technologies (ie, electronic software distribution through demo-unlock). With data collected from 224 customers of a software product, this follow-up paper shows that customers consider two transactions in the software ownership life cycle: the initial licence acquisition transaction and the licence management transaction related to software re-installations. The results also show that both transaction costs and TCA dimensions influence customers’ choice of software distribution channel.

  • The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson: A digital media archival project
    • Abstract: This case study examines the release of the iconic, long-awaited, American Entertainment television archive of Johnny Carson. Using proper archival techniques, the extensive Johnny Carson Library became accessible to fans worldwide, as well as licensing partners, interested in the private footage of America’s favourite late night television host. The Carson Library represents both an important record of the recent past and serves as a model for media archives in the future. Audiences may now view a wide range of selected clips on a portal website, which provides the media and production industry with 3,300 hours of searchable show content. Also examined in this study are the challenges and processes for how The Johnny Carson Collection became accessible to the mass public. Using MediaMine LLC’s state-of-the-art machine room, the collection was fully digitised, transcribed and monetised — ultimately bringing the archive back to life. The hope is to illustrate the importance of digital media today and how, by preserving legacy content, collections can continue to live on with relevance.
