DAM education materials used to be scarce. We had Peter Krogh’s now legendary DAM Book, but the book’s “Digital Asset Management for photographers” subtitle left a sizable portion of would-be DAM professionals feeling left out. (Even though they should have read the book anyway.) There were a few other books, but they were either a. also for specific audiences or b. were so old that one had to wonder if, by press time, DAM’s best practices were still yet to be invented.
Things have changed.
There are now several more books of relevance to DAM professionals, we have accredited universities offering courses about or related to Digital Asset Management, we have an industry #LearnDAM initiative designed to help people more easily find and advertise quality DAM materials, and that’s not all.
