The library of the university offers a uniform technical infrastructure for image data that is stored distributedly in various ways up to now. With this infrastructure, drawbacks of decentral data management regarding visibility, hosting and data security are resolved. Thereby, the focus is on image data (photos, videos and other graphic data) intended for usage e.g. in the press office or another institution. The infrastructure to be established is ought to enable university staff to archive and manage image data in a secure and comfortable way.
