9780759104464: Digital Imaging: A Practical Approach (American Association for State and Local History)

Why does Digital Imaging start with a glossary? So that right from the beginning readers learn to "speak digital." Koelling demystifies the process of planning and managing a digitizing project, including important issues of copyright and ethics, choosing equipment, weighing technical alternatives, and creating databases. These are not the trendy details that will be out of date next month but the core issues everyone needs to understand so they can make good decisions and plan projects with long-term benefits. Koelling reminds us, too, that these projects can be both fun and satisfying to work on. Don't miss the last chapter on image enhancement―history detectives have a great new technique at their fingertips.

About the Author:

Jill Marie Koelling spent seven and a half years working for the Nebraska State Historical Society as curator of photographs and head of digital imaging. She is now applying her digital imaging expertise as the Executive Director of the Collaborative Digitization Program, housed at the University of Denver.

Review:

Whether overseeing a digital project for a historical agency, engaging in scholarly research, or researching a family history, both the novice and the computer savvy will find in Digital Imaging the background and methodologies that can provide a solid basis for pursuing research in state and local history. (The Annals Of Iowa)

Digital Imaging is directly applicable to library situations. The information in this book is useful for digital services professionals, collection managers, curators, museum directors, and exhibit designers. Koelling writes knowlingly about the 'endless struggle to keep the object alive' as preservation issues and image format changes arise. These are extremely challenging issues for libarians. As the title implies, however, the book is solely about imaging and does not include audio and visual streaming. Next book, Ms. Koelling? (The Serials Librarian)

...very informative work....the book is a worthwhile investment for those who are about to embark on a digitizing project and have no idea where to start or whom to contact for assistance. (Sharon Silengo State Historical Society Of North Dakota)

Koelling's conversational style makes the book flow well and it includes something for museums and institutions of all sizes. The examples she gives to illustrate her points are easy to understand. I would recommend this book to anyone who has been considering beginning a digital imaging program and is somewhat familiar with the technology and equipment involved. (Sarah Polak Nebraska History)
