Introduction to Imaging by Howard Besser; Sally Hubbard (Editor); Deborah Lenert (Editor)This primer introduces the technology of digital imaging and outlines many of the challenges faced when creating digital image collections. The revised edition of Introduction to Imaging expands on such fundamental issues as the different varieties and uses of metadata, the utilization of controlled vocabularies, and digital preservation. The book also recommends strategies such as implementing open standards to smoothly integrate image collections and their documentation with other information resources, and guarding against collections being made obsolete by future technological developments. This book is an essential tool for curators, librarians, collection managers, administrators, scholars, and students-and anyone whose professional work involves the use of this technology. Also included are a glossary, a bibliography, and a listing of online resources.
