The University of Arizona Library and the UA's computing center are
hosting a listserv called IMAGELIB.  IMAGELIB is an unmoderated bulletin
board for the discussion of image databases in libraries.  Its purpose
is to raise questions, solicit input, and share ideas.  It is not
intended to duplicate other lists nor to engage in technical
discussions, such as World Wide Web server development and

For this listserv, topics for discussions range from:

1.  Accessing, retrieving, and displaying images from the Internet:
preferences for particular interfaces, organizing directories on local
servers, and preferences for particular clients.

2.  Creating local image databases: scanning photographic and slide
collections of scholarly value or regional significance; full-text.

3. Exploring issues such as copyright, permissions, and fair use.

4. Working with users to incorporate image databases in their courses
and research.  Sharing success stories and asking for advice.

Another function of the list is to serve as a clearinghouse to announce
image databases.  Information will be entered on a special directory on
the UA Library's Gopher server.  We will post messages to IMAGELIB in
the coming weeks inviting submissions.  At this time, we are identifying
categories so each entry will be as clear and useful to others as

In addition to existing image databases, we would like to receive
information for the clearinghouse on projects that are in-development.
This will be useful because many projects take months or years to
complete.  Knowing who is doing what could save others a great deal of
time and promote sharing new ideas.
