Digital Asset Management in museums was one of the latest topics at the OpenCulture 2012 in London.
Technical discussions on the state of CDS Gromke e.K.
OpenCulture is an international conference and trade fair for museum technology and software and is held annually. It is organised by the independent British organisation, the Collections Trust, which helps museums, galleries, libraries and archives to successfully develop the potential of their collections.
Highly interesting presentations set the scene for an evaluation of the current climate and included analysis of sample successful projects as well as predictions for the future of collections and their digital images. During the breaks there was brisk business at the stands of service providers where the hottest topics were heatedly debated. In this way, Open Culture provided an excellent platform for updating one’s own knowledge base and evaluating own activities. We were also able to see for ourselves that with the integration of digital asset management and museum databases, we are offering solutions for one of the core duties of museums in the coming years.
On 26 July, the SPECTRUM roadmap meeting offered international participants the opportunity to help determine the future development of the SPECTRUM standards with specific regards to future digitisation.
We would like to use this opportunity to thank the organisers and the many interested participants, who helped make this conference so successful. We look forward to meeting again.
