Moving Theory into Practice: Digital Imaging for Libraries and
Archives, Anne R. Kenney and Oya Y. Rieger, editors and principal
authors, (Mountain View, CA: Research Libraries Group, 2000). 189
pp. ISBN 0-9700225-0-6

   "Beyond its many virtues--well-researched, well-written,
    well-presented, relevant--is a simple principle: present the
    best technical knowledge currently around..."
        (Colin Webb, National Library of Australia)

   "Kenney and Rieger have joined authoritative and informative
    essays with practical advice and case histories from dozens of
    digital imaging projects world wide. This book is a "must read"
    for any librarian or archivist tackling a digital imaging
        (Roy Tennant, University of California, Berkeley)

This new publication from RLG is a self-help reference for
libraries, archives, museum or other institutions that choose to
reformat cultural resources to digital image form. Moving Theory
into Practice advocates an integrated approach to digital imaging
programs, from selection to access to preservation, with a heavy
emphasis on the intersection of institutional, cultural objectives
and practical digital applications.

The work is a timely and valuable reference for funders, managers,
librarians, archivists, curators, system analysts, programmers,
administrators, faculty, and other scholars. It focuses on an
interdependent circle of considerations associated with digital
imaging programs in cultural institutions. It addresses issues of
concern to many key players and stakeholders in such imaging
initiatives. It provides vital guidance in a complex arena, bringing
to bear the contributions of more than 40 experts.

Complementing the book's nine chapters, some thirty sidebars
highlight major issues, point out pertinent research trends, and
identify relevant emerging technologies and techniques. From
decision-making, to sound practices, to turning projects into
sustainable digital programs, Moving Theory into Practice provides a
wealth of balanced information and counsel.
