The second edition “…contains 30% new and updated material, including a full new chapter on risk and change management. Incorporating quotes and material from leaders in the field, as well as sample charts, graphs, and even job descriptions that readers are encouraged to reuse and adapt for their own purposes, this book is a must-have for anyone learning about Digital Asset Management.”
After many requests from the DAM community and over a year of work, the DAM Foundation has created and launched online courses on Digital Asset Management to meet the increasing demand.
Special thanks to Elizabeth Keathley, Mark Davey, some other DAM Foundation board members and other DAM professionals who helped create these online courses. DAM Foundation has launched the first online course in August 2014.
These courses are self-paced. Each assessment is reviewed by a DAM Professional.
According to the DAM Foundation website…
“The first lesson of the five-part Introduction to Digital Asset Management course is offered for free at damfoundation.org. Should participants complete the first lesson and achieve a passing mark from the education committee member overseeing their work, then the opportunity to sign up for the remaining lessons in the course will be offered. The cost of the entire five part course is $360.00 USD, and upon completion participants will receive a certificate from the DAM Foundation, as well as publicity via the DAM Foundation’s social media channels celebrating their accomplishment. The time frame for completed coursework is extended as it is expected that participants are working professionals themselves. Participants will be given six months from the pass mark of the first lesson to complete the coursework for all five lessons. Details of required coursework can be read on the Introduction to Digital Asset Management main page.”
UPDATE: DAM Foundation is no longer active as of January 5, 2017.
There is a new Digital Asset Management book coming out in late March 2014 written by Elizabeth Keathley. Elizabeth decided to quit her full-time DAM job and commit herself to write this book. Shortly afterward, I was asked to be the technical reviewer/editor on this book to review each chapter in draft form.
Working together remotely, we spent a good few months working on this book. The book titled Digital Asset Management: Content Architectures, Project Management, and Creating Order out of Media Chaos is now available for sale online. If you are still clinging to the last remaining bookstores, you may need to special order this book.
If you are interested in Digital Asset Management, check out this book for yourself:
There are quite a few organizations based in Atlanta, Georgia. Many of them are either actively using Digital Asset Management (DAM) or are very interested in using Digital Asset Management (DAM), within and across their organization. It would only make sense that Atlanta would have their very own DAM Meetup group so they could discuss hot topics about DAM and learn from each other.
For those in Atlanta who interested in DAM, this is the time to peel your fingers off your keyboards, mice and tablets for a few hours. This is the time to socialize with other people who work with Digital Asset Management. Join some like minded people in Atlanta who work with DAM and you will be surprised what you have in common across organizations when it comes to DAM. You are not alone in the world of DAM and there are plenty of you out there. Come out, share your experiences, challenges and successes. You might even learn something just by listening.
