Milne "en Masse": A Case Study in Digitizing Large Image Collections
Harkema, Craig; Avery, Cheryl
New Review of Academic Librarianship, v21 n2 p249-255 2015
In December 2012, the University of Saskatchewan Library's University Archives and Special Collections acquired the complete image collection of Courtney Milne, a professional photographer whose worked encompassed documentary, abstract and fine art photographs. From acquisition to digital curation, the authors identify, outline, and discuss the various points at which key decisions were made in order to make this extensive collection available to the public via an online database. Issues include decisions on administrative control over the workflow, the level of description needed, and the equipment, software, and technical formats required for digitization and display. In particular, the authors discuss how the format of the work influenced issues surrounding reproduction rights, access and use in unanticipated ways.
