The European Commission on Preservation and Access (ECPA) just
published the report `SEPIADES. Cataloguing photographic
collections'. It aims to provide background information on the
SEPIADES (SEPIA Data Element Set) advisory report and software tool
that were developed in the framework of the SEPIA programme. SEPIA
stands for 'Safeguarding European Photographic Images for Access'
(SEPIA) (<URL:>).

SEPIADES is a multi-level data element set to catalogue photographic
collections. Apart from 21 core elements, it contains many
suggestions for use of specific, detailed elements. The report
explains about the motives behind SEPIADES, providing an
introduction to both the model and the software tool. It is aimed at
all those involved in cataloguing photographic collections, both
cataloguers and decision makers.

Copies of the report can be ordered on-line (16 euros plus postage
and handling costs*) or downloaded free of charge from

    Within the Netherlands: 2.30 for the first item, 1.10 for every
    additional item.
    In Europe: 4.00 for the first item, 2.00 for every additional
    Outside Europe:  8.00 for the first item, 3.00 for every
    additional item.
