New DAM Events Calendar

DAM Guru Program has launched a free DAM events calendar to offer the global community a one-stop portal to find events, meetups, expos and conferences for:

  • Digital asset management
  • Content management
  • Library and information sciences

Anyone can post a new event. All event submissions are moderated for suitability and accuracy before they’re added to the calendar.

As a bonus for DAM Guru Program members, the program will promote DGP member participation in events for free. So, for example, though a given conference might be listed only once in the calendar, DAM Guru Program will repeatedly promote across its social channels any talks, presentations or panel discussions that involve members.

The calendar is available at: http://DAMguru.com/events

New DAM Book: Metadata for Content Management

Metadata for Content Management book cover

Metadata for Content Management by David Diamond

DAM Guru Program creator, David Diamond, has released a new book entitled, Metadata for Content Management. It’s David’s first book release since DAM Survival Guide, back in 2012.

Metadata for Content Management helps digital content managers design better content organization strategies, and envision and deploy creative ways in which metadata, taxonomy, policy and workflow can be used to make digital content systems more usable, functional and valuable to users.

(In case you’re wondering, the people on the cover are David’s parents.)

You can learn more about the book and see a table of contents at David’s book website. You can buy it now on Amazon.
