Publication on digital imaging

From: Barbara Berger <beb1>
Date: Wednesday, August 14, 1996
The Department of Preservation and Conservation, Cornell University
Library, is pleased to announce the publication of Digital Imaging
for Libraries and Archives by Anne R. Kenney and Stephen Chapman.
This 200 page guide represents a greatly expanded version of the
training manual used in Cornell's series of digital imaging
workshops.   It begins with a theoretical overview of the key
concepts, vocabulary, and challenges associated with digital
conversion of paper- and film-based materials.  This is followed by
an overview of the hardware/software, communications, and managerial
considerations associated with implementing a technical
infrastructure to support a full imaging program.  Additional
chapters present information on the creation of databases and
indexes, the implications of outsourcing imaging services,
converting photographs and film intermediates, issues associated
with providing long-term access to digital information, and
suggestions for continuing education.  The guide is issued in
loose-leaf format to facilitate updates and includes two formula
cards designed to assist librarians and archivists with determining
conversion, storage, and access requirements.

The price of the guide is $75.00 plus $5.00 for shipping and handling within
North America, or $8.00 for overseas shipping.  Orders must be prepaid, with
checks made payable to "Department of Preservation, Cornell University,"
with payment in U.S. funds.  For ordering information, contact
