        Subject: New MA in Digital Asset Management at King's College London

King's has launched an innovative postgraduate programme to respond to the demand for digitally literate professionals to work in libraries, archives, cultural heritage institutions and business enterprises by equipping students with a range of strategic, technical and practical skills to provide direction and leadership in this area.

We live in a digital age where understanding our history, culture, society, and the future development and innovation in the economy and business relies increasingly upon the effective management, curation, preservation, and use of a wide range of complex digital information and knowledge. Managing this digital information is presenting significant challenges for organisations and as a consequence there is an increasing demand for professionals with expertise in digital asset management.

The MA in Digital Asset Management, jointly taught by the Centre for Computing in the Humanities and the Centre for e-Research, takes a comparative approach requiring students to explore and critically assess competing theories and practices from across library, archival, information science, and e-science thus providing a well-rounded understanding of the requirements across domains.

There are still places available for 2010 entry.
