The MA in Digital Asset Management at King's College London is jointly
taught by the Centre for Computing in the Humanities and the Centre for
e-Research. It addresses an increasingly important area of knowledge and
skills for those seeking employment in library, archival and curatorial
activity, namely the management of digital assets. The programme equips
students to work in a variety of professional contexts within the cultural
heritage sector and elsewhere wherever digital assets are managed. 

We are witnessing rapid growth in the volume and complexity of digital
materials, both digitized and born digital, so that the management of these
digital assets is now a significant activity. In government, both local and
central, and in commerce and industry, more and more of the information
created in the normal course of activity is in electronic form, whether as
web publications, images, databases, GIS files, data sets, email, or
documents in word-processed, spreadsheet or PDF formats. If the full value
of these assets to the economy, society and culture is to be realized it is
essential that fully trained professionals are available to ensure their
management, curation and use.   

The Programme will equip students with the necessary critical and reflective
capacities, set within a thorough grounding in the theory and practice of
digital curation.  Students will also gain a great deal of practical
hands-on experience, working on real problems and digital collections
throughout the course. The course includes an optional internship module
that will allow students to observe and analyse first-hand an organisation
in the cultural heritage sector while gaining work experience and developing
transferable skills.

The MA in Digital Asset Management provides a robust and practical response
to the skills shortage currently affecting the management, exploitation and
long-term preservation of digital assets in both the public and private sector.
