This book explores the analysis and interpretation, discovery and retrieval of a variety of non-textual objects, including image, music, and moving image. Bringing together chapters written by leading experts in the field, this book provides an overview of the theoretical and academic aspects of digital cultural documentation and the state of the art. Case studies of digitization projects drawn from practitioners within libraries and information organizations showcase both technical and more strategic issues relating to cultural heritage projects, digital asset management and sustainability. Key topics covered include:

  • Semiotics of digital cultural objects: images, music and film
  • Digital cultural object retrieval: semantic and emotional indexing
  • Semantic Web, FRBR, intertextuality and cultural objects
  • Photo retrieval on the web: Flickr, Facebook and other social networking sites
  • Classical music retrieval on the web
  • Indie music retrieval on the web: Spotify, social tagging, recommender sites
  • Film retrieval on the web: YouTube, social tagging and sharing, IMDb, indexing, controlled vocabulary

Review:

"Reinforces how challenging it is to preserve digital cultural content in an age of competing formats and transient content sources. Emphasis on metadata, tagging, and linked data provides continuity throughout diverse case studies while reinforcing the methodologies discussed in the contextual chapters." --Partnership

"The book meets the expectations raised in the title and addresses all three parts: analysis, discovery and retrieval of digital cultural objects. It will definitely provide inspiration to those students who are looking for novel research and project topics." --Information Research

"This international perspective along with the theoretical, applied, academic, and administrative points of view represented throughout make this an insightful collection of works ... This unique volume containing new analyses and case studies is a valuable contribution to the field s body of literature." --Library Resources & Technical Services
