This session focuses on the current landscape of museum DAMS and the need for more museums to share their DAM experiences with the field.

The session will follow the attached itinerary:

A. Danielle Knapp, John F. Kennedy Graduate, will begin and mediate the session introducing the purpose of the session and her thesis “Digital Asset Management Systems & Museums” findings. The thesis findings will outline the survey and interview results and produce a "snapshot" of the current landscape of DAMS in Museums for the audience. Closing with the overall trends and themes presently in the field. Approximately 10-12 minutes.

B. Each of the 3 panelists will discuss four major themes all museums encounter. First, each panelist will discuss their institution's "Need" for a DAMS. Second, the problems each institution was aiming to resolve with a DAMS. Third, the barriers each institution encountered and finally the lessons learned from their DAMS implementation experience. (Approximately 10-12 minutes each).

C. The last 10 to 15 minutes will be spent discussing what the museum field can do as a professional community to build more effective DAMS tailored to museum's needs, mission, and long-term goals. The overall need for more museums to share their DAM experiences with the field and answering questions from the audience.
