Graphic Resources in the Spanish Art Libraries.
Medina, Alicia Garcia; Coso, Teresa
The interest in graphic information has increased explosively and is explored through various communication networks like the Internet and the audiovisual media. Art libraries, museums, cultural centers, and art foundations manage and store a lot of images in several departments and in print and digital formats. This paper discusses the cataloging of graphic information in Spanish institutions in order to serve users' needs and conserve the original graphic material. The paper shows how the different formats for description and indexing can be compatible to make access to graphic information easier and to establish the links to digital graphic supports. Topics addressed include: (1) collections of graphic material in Spanish museums and archives; (2) access to the graphic information in the libraries, files, and specialized centers in Spain; (3) classification and indexing; and (4) digitization, including criteria for establishing a program for digitization.
