Within museums or other institutions that steward collections, digital asset management software (DAMS) enables the preservation and management of digital assets.

Just as a CMS is software for collections data, a DAMS delivers targeted care for digital assets by supporting their cataloguing, creation, storage, retrieval, and protection.

For a museum, implementing a DAMS can improve media workflows, facilitate responsible access to digital assets, and ensure these assets are properly documented, searchable, and safeguarded from loss or improper use.
