Abstract

This session will cover the evolution of a locally developed Digital Asset Management System (DAMS) at the UC San Diego Library. The presenters will trace the growth of our digital repository from a dark archive (2005) to a system providing public access to our digital collections (2009), as well as the inclusion of research data in 2013. The presenters will share internal processes for evaluating the DAMS; including the management of required fixes, desired enhancement and new features that have helped shape the development process for the system. This iteration of the DAMS, referred to as DAMS4, also incorporates a new data model allowing for the management and presentation of complex objects, particularly multi part objects that are exemplified by data sets and collections of mixed media, among others. The presenters will discuss the use of the Chronopolis repository for archival storage of our objects.
