“What Does It Mean to be a DAM [Digital Asset Management] Champ?” Laura Fu

Shared from SLA Connect:

I often have people ask what I do. Other librarians seem especially interested in digital asset management (DAM) and how they could transition into a DAM role. The term “DAM Champ” is used often and describes someone at a company or office who has the potential to lead that company or office to the next level. It often is a librarian or information professional.

I had so many questions on what a DAM Champ was and how to become one, that I wrote a short blog  about it. Please let me know if anyone has questions or would like to chat further about DAM librarianship!
