Please join us at The Factory ( in downtown Grand Rapids on Wednesday, June 01, 2016, for David's presentation, Digital Content Findability Strategies

Based on content from David’s forthcoming book, Taxonomy and Metadata Design for Digital Content Management, the presentation will help attendees:

• Determine the best method of content organization for different needs

• Create a plan for building effective taxonomy and metadata schema designs that work for personal and professional uses

• Define simple policy requirements to encourage content management discipline

• Understand how metadata can enable and improve automated and manual workflows

• Build a DAM or content management system today that’s ready to adapt to what’s coming tomorrow in terms of search and metadata

In our previous Meetups, the inability to find existing content has been a frequently expressed pain point among our members. In our June event, you'll learn how to put your organization and your clients on the path to findable content.

Attendees will receive free copies of Diamond’s 2012 release, DAM Survival Guide, sponsored by Picturepark.

Sign up now: seating is limited. If you're bringing a friend or client, have them register online so that we can make sure we can accommodate them.
