Photo Storage and Retrieval.
Hill, Joy; And Others
In four conference presentations newspaper librarians presented information about their photograph storage and retrieval operations. They discussed picture sources, selection and weeding, picture evaluation, picture quality, ways photos are used, filing methods, source books for illustrative material, file subject coding, ways of dealing with other newspaper staff members, photograph copying methods and technology, and labeling. Subjects which arose during a question and answer period included costs, personnel, oversize pictures, picture files in the library versus picture files in the newspaper's other departments, map files, microfilmed photo collections, electronic systems, and possibilities for computerized image storage. A bibliography on picture storage and retrieval is included, along with a list of illustration books. Two examples of photo subject headings with subheadings are provided, one on President Nixon and one on Vietnam. (LS)
