Book Contents

DAM Survival Guide and Metadata for Content Management share a few key attributes:

  • Both are written from the perspective of professional experience rather than academic theory
  • Both are written in easy-to-understand language that is easy to absorb
  • Both are less than 200 pages in length, making them nice weekend or vacation reads

DAM Survival Guide is a good place to start if:

  • You’re brand new to digital asset management or content management and you need to get up to speed fast
  • You want to be able to envision all steps of planning a DAM initiative before you get too far
  • You think a DAM or content system is right for your organization, but you’re not sure what it will help (and what it might hinder)

Metadata for Content Management is a good place to start if:

  • You’ve read DAM Survival Guide or you already have a basic content management or DAM background
  • You want to learn more about how to make a content system truly usable and effective by getting clever and creative with metadata, taxonomy, policy and workflow
  • You’ve read so many academic discussions of metadata, taxonomy, policy and workflow that you’re thinking of studying quantum mechanics just to give your brain a break
