Where has JISC Digital Media been all my life? This link alone allows access to more information on best practices for creating and organizing digital images than I can shake a stick at. These resources include amazing amounts of information on metadata and DAMS. There is even advice on managing your images on Flickr. Let’s just say that I now have a sensible starting point for an idea for a presentation at the upcoming Personal Digital Archiving conference in San Francisco in 2011.

Findability is “the degree to which a particular object is easy to discover or locate” (Peter Morville, 2005, Ambient Findability) My first after school job was in the public library. I developed an appreciation of the Dewey Decimal system and never looked back, except for that whirlwind decade in advertising… Luckily, a digital asset management project at DDB reignited my interest in library and information sciences. I quickly obtained an MLIS and a position as a Digital Asset Manager administering a system for a high profile client following several awesome metadata projects and an internship at a worldwide media giant. My information related interests include taxonomy, metadata, cataloging, digitization, search, social media, digital asset management, emerging technologies and visual resources. Call me the Space Age Librarian, Visual Resource Manager, Content Specialist, Cataloging and Metadata Librarian or Digital Asset Management Expert.
