Database systems have been crucial to transform the practice in managing digital
collections. However, digital image (whether born digital or digitised from a photograph)
represent a new challenge as technology continues to transform our cultural heritage
organizations. Creation, management and use of digital assets has become core
business for LAM (Libraries, Archives and Museums) sector.

In response to these challenges, the model of professional collections management
has expanded beyond the physical collection and its associated information to include
Digital Asset Management (DAM).

In this seminar we will identify the main functionalities needed for managing an image
collection and we will analyse different systems. It will also take place the presentation
of different experiences from EuropeanaPhotography partners related to this subject.
