Book Description

30 Oct 2000
Digital imaging is an increasingly important technique in any electronic library project. It is beginning to provide the solutions to preservation and access problems, and is on the agenda for work with special collections. The public library sector has begun to explore the potential of digitizing collections as a method of providing wider access to their customers, investigating new interactive ways of promoting library services, and supporting learning in the community. This introductory practioner's guide to digital imaging provides a practical approach to undertaking a digitization project, looking at every stage involved in the process for printed text, photographs, illustrations, maps and newspapers. It discusses the options and the preservation and access issues involved at each stage, by asking: what is digitization?; why digitize?; and what are the factors determining digital image quality?

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent text for those about to digitise 16 Dec 2005
By A Customer
This is really the definitive text for anyone planning to undertake digitisation within a library, archive or museum.
How much storage do you need to buy for 500 images? 5000? The text covers this in laypersons terms. Lee explains all of the concepts very well. The text is accessible to most readers, even those with a low technical threshold. If you are undertaking a project where digital imaging is central, then this book is an essential purchase for you. You'll never have thought you would understand the anatomy of a digital imege so clearly.
Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Short Gem 17 July 2001
By Mark Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
I was assigned to provide an evaluation of digitizing a collection. Just by chance I picked up this book in our library. I thought it was about imagery, but it is realy about what most people call digitization. This book has an very high information to fluff ratio. It is filled with pracital advice ranging from technical advice (image formats, digitization engines) to project organization tips. Although aimed at the library/archival community is is invaluable to anyone who has to digitize a large body of documents.
