Managing Photographs, Files and Other University Assets -- An effort is under way to help Johns Hopkins departments and offices have a way to manage photographs, slides and virtually any other type of asset that can be digitized.

A pilot program comprising users from academic departments, libraries, administration and public affairs offices is now testing a Web-based system for storing, cataloging, sharing and teaching with a variety of important files, from photographs and reports to pdfs and spreadsheets.

If you think your office or department could benefit from such a system, please contact Glenn Small at or 410-516-7109. Participation is sought from all divisions and campuses.
