The University of Michigan BlueStream project provides the cyberinfrastructure to support digital media enabled academic practice. Essential access, media, metadata, analysis, and storage services do the heavy lifting allowing the community to focus more on academic outcomes and less on technical skills. Three years of pilot projects across multiple disciplines have provided a depth and breadth of experience. As the academic community explores the emerging practice, the information technology community explores media provisioning and requisite interoperability with the wide range of enterprise and academic systems, i.e. course management, directory, library, etc. This session will provide an overview of the BlueStream Digital Asset Management (DAM) Cyberinfrastructure, related academic practice, and discussion of relevant issues.
