In Sustainable Enterprise Strategies for Optimizing Digital Stewardship: A Guide for Libraries, Archives, and Museums, Angela I. Fritz explores how a multicomponent Digital Asset Management Ecosystem (DAME) can ensure strategic growth of institutional collections in the context of long-term holistic collection management plans.
Increasingly, librarians, archivists, and curators are managing an integrated digital ecosystem by coordinating and complementing a number of existing and emerging initiatives. This new guide provides a high-level overview and offers a conceptual framework for understanding a digital asset management ecosystem with discussions on digital collection typologies and assessment, planning and prioritization, the importance of a community of practice through associated workflows, and an understanding of the critical role that foresight planning plays in balancing an evolving infrastructure and expanding digital content with creative cost modeling and sustainability strategies.
