Stanford ALL-Image Exchange (SALLIE)

SALLIE (Stanford ALL-Image Exchange) is Stanford's campus-wide system for managing and sharing digital assets (photos, videos, and other files) used for communications. SALLIE is based on the Cumulus digital asset management platform from Canto.

Groups and departments at Stanford use SALLIE to store and manage collections of digital media assets, primarily photographs, using the Cumulus software to organize and “tag” files with metadata. Departments then have the option of making some, all, or none of their assets available to the rest of the Stanford community via the SALLIE web interface.

Stanford community members seeking photos to enliven websites, brochures, posters, or other media can log in to the SALLIE website to find and download images shared by various groups and departments. Metadata stored with each image provides information about usage rights and restrictions.  

SALLIE is available for use by any school, department, or organization with a direct Stanford University affiliation. SALLIE is primarily intended for storing and managing communication-related assets; it is not intended for research, academic, or other types of digital assets. SALLIE is not available for personal use by individuals.
