About the role
My client has an exciting opportunity for a professional to join the Collection Information Systems team within the Collection Engagement business unit as a Digital Asset Management System (DAMS) Coordinator. This role is responsible for the day-to-day administration and use of the DAMS; works hands-on with the digital assets and data; and trains and supports users of the DAMS. The position also has a pivotal role in cohesively integrating use of the DAMS across the Museum’s systems and programs.
The Collection Engagement Business Unit focuses on current and future processes supporting engagement with the Museum’s collections, including building the Museum’s capacity to manage, store and preserve digital collection material.   The Business Unit encompasses the diverse range of activities which make the Museum’s collections discoverable. These include documentation, imaging, and digitisation, administering the Museum’s Collection Management System (currently EMu) and Digital Asset Management System (currently Piction), managing associated intellectual property rights, managing the Library and Archive collections, and providing public access– both online and on-site in the Museum’s collection stores.  The Business Unit also includes a First Nations Collections section, which is responsible for repatriation, facilitating First Nations community access to collections, and enhancing the knowledge of the First Nations collections held by the Museum. 

The Collection Engagement Business Unit works closely with the Curatorial team, who set the intellectual framework for collection development; the Collection Care and Management team who are responsible for collection conservation, storage, and related logistics; and the Information Technology team who are responsible for the technical infrastructure and systems.
The Collection Systems (CS) team is the business owner of two critical Museum systems – the collection management system, currently EMu, and digital asset management system, currently Piction. Assets stored in Piction relate to cross-museum functions as well as to collections and collection data is managed across both systems as well as being published online via Piction. As part of the CS team, you will closely collaborate with the Collection Systems Coordinator and the Collection Systems Support Officer to develop, manage, and promote the systems, processes and standards for collection information and digital assets.
