The aim of this case study is to illustrate the
central role of a DAMS in building an online
learning resource around collections of
paintings, drawings and photographs held at
the Courtauld Institute of Art. It builds on
material provided by the Courtauld Institute
on their Art and Architecture project, and
gives an overview of the production process
for the central repository of digital objects. At
present, the Art and Architecture project is in
month eleven of an initial two-year phase, and
has been in full production mode for five
months. For this step, we approached the
project director, Giles O'Bryen, to provide the
DigiCULT community with a summary of
lessons learnt.
