Librarians gathered in London for a full-day DAM Workshop

Ex Libris

On May 30, 2024, digital collection librarians from institutions such as Oxford University, Kings College London, and the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) gathered in London to participate in developing the next-generation DAM system that will ensure the longevity of special collections while making them easily discoverable.

First, we tackled a pressing concern: threats to digital collections. Protecting our cultural legacy from unpredictable events is essential, so librarians are taking an active role in building new preservation solutions. Attendees and the Ex Libris team have explored different options for applying digital preservation concepts to their rare collections.

Digital assets are often managed in siloed ways outside of the library's main system, greatly limiting their accessibility. The second part of the DAM workshop focused on how GenAI can help us bring our unique library collections out of the shadows.

"Digital asset management and digital preservation are taking center stage in Clarivate's portfolio, with Rosetta Plus and Ex Libris Specto. The purpose of this workshop was partially to present, but mainly to hear our expert customers, understand their vision of DAM and DP and create partnerships for the exciting journey ahead. The workshop exceeded expectations! It's been great to see and hear everyone" says Daniel Greenberg, Director of Product Management at Ex Libris.
