Libris by PhotoShelter Hits Milestone, Signs on 100 Colleges and Universities
Purdue University, Jacksonville State University and University of Central Florida Use Libris to Harness the Power of Images
Milwaukee, WI – HighEdWeb Conference -- October 4, 2015 - PhotoShelter (www.photoshelter.com), the world’s leading professional photography cloud service, today announced it hit a new milestone, signing on more than 100 colleges and universities who rely on Libris as their digital asset management (DAM) solution of choice. Recently joining the pack are Purdue University, Jacksonville State University and the University of Central Florida.
Libris is a simple and powerful cloud-based system designed to empower organizations to efficiently and securely organize, collaborate and share their visual assets, anytime and anywhere. Colleges and Universities use Libris to easily automate image distribution, grant permissions, preserve and protect image use and precious archives. With Libris’ tagging capabilities, images can be easily and quickly searched, saving hours of wasted time looking for images. Libris even enables schools to sell images and generate revenue, exceeding NCAA compliance standards.
“The smartphone and social media revolutions have created an exploding need for universities and colleges to communicate visually. Institutions of higher learning have an incredible opportunity to share their stories through photos - from shots of the winning football team to selfies of your students,” said Andrew Fingerman, CEO of PhotoShelter. “We are delighted that 100 plus colleges and universities – including Purdue University, Jacksonville State University and the University of Central Florida, have selected Libris to harness the power of their images to better tell their story, build their brand and even generate revenue from their ability to sell compelling campus imagery.”
Purdue University Speeding Images to Social Media
“With the popularity of social media, we like to get images out while events are still going on,” said Paul Sadler, Creative Services Manager, Purdue University. “Libris makes that happen for us on the fly. We usually have photographers shooting five or more events each weekend with hundreds of images being uploaded at a time. During a football game, our photographers will upload a few select images every time out and then our social media operators and designers in the press box can grab them from the Libris gallery to post in-game graphics on our social outlets. Libris makes it easy for all of our sport communication directors to access and share their photos in one central location. We’re saving a ton of time -- finding the images we need in a matter of seconds.”
Jacksonville State University Attracting Prospective Students with Visual Storytelling
“Showing how we're the right choice for prospective students and their parents involves high quality, creative and compelling images. Without a way to get those images to our marketing team members and public relations specialists, well, that story is much harder to tell and makes competing with other higher education institutions much more difficult,” said Steve Latham, Director of Photographic Services, Jacksonville State University. “Libris enables us to quickly and efficiently distribute images to campus clients, media, printers, publications, etc. -- helping us more effectively tell the JSU story.”
University of Central Florida Accessing, Searching and Sharing Images from 16 Intercollegiate Sports
“Visual asset accessibility and searchability were a huge challenge for us. We receive hundreds of images from virtually every one of our university events -- and with 16 intercollegiate sports, that’s a lot of photos,” said Andy Seeley, Assistant Director of Athletics, University of Central Florida. “We now have the ability to quickly and easily access, search and share images with media members, colleagues and others who need them. Libris is affordable, simple and easy to use; sorting and identifying photos used to take us days or weeks -- and now it can be done in a matter of hours.”
Libris made today’s announcement at the HighEdWeb Conference being held October 4-7 in Milwaukee, WI. Martin Vloet, University Solutions Manager for Libris and a former photographer and brand manager for the University of Michigan, will present on “Pics or it didn't happen: Why Photos Are Key to Building Your Brand and Generating Revenue” on Monday, October 4 from 4:15-5:00PM at the Hyatt Regency Milwaukee Wisconsin Center in room 101C.
