Good afternoon,

Firstly, my apologies for cross-posting with different listservs.

I am in the beginning brainstorming phase of acquiring a media library system for our client/original assets (elements and masters of all formats, also graphics/anim, audio). Once all of our assets are cataloged and barcoded, I have the task of implementing a stock footage service. The final goal is a complete DAM system. Can anyone out there suggest any resources (books, websites, organizations etc) to which I may refer?

I am specifically looking for information on digital rights management, foreseeable legal obstacles in re-use of proprietary footage and general stock library management support resources. Also, as a member of AMIA, I will be attending the conference next month. Any event in particular that anyone suggests?

Any advice or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Please respond off-list at my work email!

Thank you kindly,

Laura Fu

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
