SPEC Kit 335: Digital Image Collections and Services · 25
The Libraries has a digitization plan, which is focused on plans for content and processing. We have a DAM, but no
overarching plan.
We are in the beginning stages of trying to get a DAM plan in place, but do not have anything event drafted at present.
There have been many discussions about this to date, however.
We are in the process of creating overarching policies to compliment separate project specific policies.
We do not currently have a written DAM, though we have been following best practices where we can. We are currently
writing a program statement for DIOA, which includes strategic planning for digital preservation.
We have bits and pieces of a DAMP that covers things such as preservation/digitization standards/cataloging, etc. but
no overarching plan.
