Digital asset management systems can offer a lot of functionality that creates a one stop platform for managing digital collections at each step of the data lifecycle – plan, create, collect, process, analyze, store, preserve and share. This capacity to manage so many pieces of digital collections services through one platform, can make the adoption of this kind of technology a key component in designing sustainable digital collections services. This presentation will provide a summary of University of Calgary’s implementation of the Cortex digital asset management system and how we are using Cortex at each step of the data lifecycle to manage digital collections.
