As we tweet, Facebook, write blog posts, populate our Collections Online and enrich our exhibitions with digital content there is increasing pressure to produce and manage high quality digital assets. Associating images and other digital material with good descriptive data is key to staff or the public finding elements they want to use or reuse.
