COVID 19 created challenges for the GLAM sector; however, it also saw innovation. Online and other ways of sharing collections are now commonplace. Lookatme™ is the ideal future-proofing solution that helps Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums operate more effectively and efficiently in both virtual and physical environments.

Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums are facing the same digital transformation and COVID challenges as other government and private organisations around the globe. They need to answer the question, 'do we place digital services at our core or continue to view them as a peripheral function?'. From a user and relevance perspective, this is no longer a question; online and digital access to collections and content is essential.

Lookatme™ Digital Asset Management solutions were designed for the GLAM environment, allowing clients to use accepted industry metadata schemas and advanced collaboration, approval, and reporting features to breathe life and purpose into collections.

How to manage access to your digital collections and archives

Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums have unique needs and responsibilities in managing their digital collections. Some assets may need to be readily available. Yet others need controlled and secure access. Assets themselves need to be curated using accepted industry metadata schemas such as SPECTRUM, AGLS and RAD. Some collections may be freely available, whereas others need to be monetised with royalty-based reproduction or advertising revenue.

Lookatme™ can manage every aspect of this process with a specialised Digital Asset Management solution built in collaboration with the GLAM sector.

The role of Lookatme™ in the GLAM sector

Lookatme™ has worked closely with the Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums for more than a decade, providing what is widely considered to be the Digital Asset Management solution with the highest user acceptance in the sector. Working with an organisation such as Museums Victoria, Copyright Agency Limited, Transport for NSW Historical Archive, Fred Williams Estate, Universal Images Group and other Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums around the globe, Lookatme™ has built an exceptional understanding of the needs and goals of the sector.

Innovations that drive digital transformation

This knowledge has been a cornerstone in the evolution of the Lookatme™ DAM. It continues to drive innovations that allow clients to develop ecosystems that improve access across channels and touchpoints while providing more outstanding tracking and management capabilities. Recent developments now allow multiple opportunities to monetise collections directly through the Lookatme™ DAM.

Lookatme™ embed codes allow content to be managed centrally through the DAM while providing additional user experience features.

Records management systems
