  • This study explores the role of the Digital Asset Management system within Cultural Heritage Institutions, and acts as a needs assessment for institutions with DAM systems in place. The study was conducted to understand how Digital Asset Management systems are being used in institutions and what the potential roadblocks are for implementation at smaller institutions. Before delving into research, the paper outlines both the history of Digital Asset Management systems in museums, as well as its potential futures. The research is based on a survey and telephone interviews of industry professionals that occurred in the Spring of 2019. Despite a growing interest in DAM systems, Cultural Heritage Institutions are still in need of more nuanced features specific to their workflows.
