5 Things Thursday: DAM, Special Special Collections, RDA

Here are 5 more things of interest:

  1. A lovely British take on why organisations need a digital asset management department. Including that “the role of this department being about education rather than just a place to dump all the cataloguing jobs that DAM users don’t fancy taking on themselves…”
  2. Incredibly special Special Collections libraries complete with an archive of punk.
  3. How to design efficiency into DAM workflows.
  4. An interview with one of the people behind RDA – Simon Edwards.
  5. Kodak and the digital archivists’ dilemma.
