At the end of February, we covered the forthcoming release of a new Digital Asset Management book by Elizabeth Keathley of of Atlanta Metadata and also DAM Foundation: “Digital Asset Management: Content Architectures, Project Management, and Creating Order out of Media Chaos”. The title was released by publishers Apress earlier this week.
Most of our readers who follow the DAM scene will have picked this up via various other means as it was publicised on David Riecks’ Controlled Vocabulary group, but for anyone who might have missed it, Elizabeth has made an audio stream available for free download on the Atlanta Metadata site: http://atlantametadata.com/dam-audio-book-feed/ As per David’s post, there is an iTunes stream too: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/dam-audio-book-feed-atlanta/id849900315
For various reasons, this week has been a busy one for everyone involved with DAM News, but I am steadily working my way through the kindle version. So far, Elizabeth’s book seems like a comprehensive and very well researched piece of work. It is DAM News editorial policy to critique DAM-related materials (of all types) and more often than not we don’t have to try too hard to find areas for improvement, but certainly on this occasion, there isn’t much (if anything) to argue with. If you are involved with DAM, or are thinking you might need to be soon, you should invest in a copy of this as well as David Diamond’s DAM Survival Guide book – they are both excellent sources of useful information about handling the practical issues you will encounter with most DAM implementation projects.
