Summary: I am completely new to the DAM field and am interested in learning more and growing my skills. Currently, I am a graduate student working on a master’s degree in library and information science with an emphasis on information organization.
I believe that proper data organization combined with a sufficient amount of metadata is key to accessibility. This ideology comes from my own professional experience in the broadcasting field where it was my responsibility to help keep the video and script archives at various affiliate television stations.
My personal frustration with outdated data management practices inspired me to discover better methodologies of data organization as they exist in the digital world. I am hoping that once I achieve a master’s degree next year to find employment within the digital asset management field, hopefully working with audiovisual or multimedia materials.
