The purpose of the role is to review the content and management of NTS photographic archive holdings – both analogue and digital – and develop a strategy for improved management of those holdings, with a particular focus on rights management and information retrieval. The strategy will address recommendations for selective digitisation and rationalisation, implementation of cataloguing standards within the DAMs, and the creation of digital preservation protocols. The role will establish DAMs workflows and will begin the task of cataloguing and improving the management of our photographic archive. Most importantly it will inform our approach to managing rights and commercial exploitation of our digital collections assets and will help us understand the role of the photographic archive within NTS. At the end of this project, we will be able to articulate a clear vision for the future management of the photographic archive and its role within the Trust and we will have a clear road map for how to achieve that.
