This is inarguably the definitive book on Digital Asset Management. It has all the information; you don’t need to go to multiple sources. It should be a required textbook in every Library Science program, and be in the hands of anyone who has anything to do with managing digital content.

This book is a must-read if you are involved in or going to be involved in a DAM project at your organization, regardless of your role—project manager, librarian/taxonomist, developer, department head. It will be your project guide from beginning to end—in the beginning for a broad introduction to the terms, concepts and questions that you and your colleagues should ask yourselves and any DAM vendors you assess; and then throughout as a reference to keep track of the many, many questions and considerations that arise during complex technological and institutional projects of this sort. This book is a fantastic reference resource that you will come back to again and again as a refresher and for reminders. Of particular note—Theresa excels at explaining software systems and how they fit into complex technological and institutional environments. Her perspective is particularly useful to technology literate readers without a computer science background who want a stronger understanding of how the software really works, and the vocabulary necessary to communicate user needs to developers.
