Japanese Society of Pictorial Science

From: Walter Henry <whenry>

The following announcement appeared in news.announce.important:


    A newly established academic society, The Japanese Society of
    Pictorial Science (JSPS) has three main objectives on its
    developments in the area of psychology,

    1) to develop the library  system for collecting and distributing
       the audio-visual scientific materials and application software
       which should be a permanent resource for scientific activities,

    2) to conserve the experimental apparatus, instruments, historically
       important documentation, and so on, which used to be quite
       important in our laboratory in a form of VTR or motion picture
       and any other picture retrieval system, such as digital image
       database, and

    3) to publish the scientific newsletter which describes on the
       audio-visual materials, application software to generate the
       images on CRT display, and distribute the information for newly
       registered  materials in this library.

    A large quantity of the audio-visual materials, application
    software, historically important instruments are now preserved at
    the many institutions individually. On the other hand they are now
    being lost and destroyed for various reasons.  We have a
    responsibility to preserve them, to make systematic organization for
    their usage, and to pass them on to the next generation.

    More detailed information will be available on request by email.
