Guides to Quality in Visual Resource Imaging

On July 17, the Research Libraries Group (RLG), Digital Libraries Federation (DLF), and the Council on Library and Information Resources announced a new set of five guides to the technical and planning aspects of digital imaging of visual resources. As the official press release notes, "this new Web-based reference is designed to serve the growing community of museums, archives, and research libraries that are turning to digital conversion to provide greater access to their visual resources as well as to help preserve the original materials." The guides include "Planning a Digital Imaging Project"; "Selecting a Scanner"; "Imaging Systems: the Range of Factors Affecting Image Quality"; "Measuring Quality of Digital Masters"; and "File Formats for Digital Masters." All are offered in HTML format, and users's comments are encouraged for future updates.
