Rate this:
This primer introduces the technology and vocabulary of digital imaging and illustrates the choices that must be made when images are digitized. In addition to explaining the creation of digital images databases, the book identifies such fundamental issues as how to integrate an image database with other information resources and how to interchange visual information among a variety of computerized systems. The authors recommend strategies to ensure that future technological developments will not foreclose the options of upgrading databases and also provide a glossary of basic terms and a helpful bibliography. Introduction to Imaging is an essential tool for curators, librarians, collection managers, administrators, scholars, and students--anyone whose professional work has been changed by this new technology.
