Research Agenda for Networked Cultural Heritage.
Getty Art History Information Program, Santa Monica, CA.
The rapid growth of multimedia computing and the Internet, and the entrance of the commercial sector into information and the education sector previously dominated by academic interests, have raised the stakes for arts and humanities computing. In addition, ongoing reductions in funding for arts, humanities and educational research have made it imperative that dollars be well spent. The Getty Art History Information Program (AHIP) commissioned eight individuals to write papers on research issues considered critical to future progress in arts and humanities computing, and conducted two electronic discussions, open to the Internet community, to stimulate reaction to their views. In addition to the full text of the papers, this report provides a summary of the papers and discussions as a basis for identifying issues that any research agenda in arts and humanities computing should address. The papers are: (1) "Tools for Creating and Exploiting Content" (Robert Kolker and Ben Shneiderman); (2) "Knowledge Representation" (Susan Hockey); (3) "Resource Search and Discovery" (Gary Marchionini); (4) "Conversion of Traditional Source Materials into Digital Form" (Anne R. Kenney); (5) "Image and Multimedia Retrieval" (Donna M. Romer); (6) "Learning and Teaching" (Janet H. Murray); (7) "Archiving and Authenticity" (David Bearman); (8) "New Social and Economic Mechanisms To Encourage Access" (John Garrett). A topical index to the papers and a glossary are located at the end of the report. (Author/SWC)
