Digital Archival Image Collections: Who Are the Users?
Herold, Irene M. H.
Behavioral & Social Sciences Librarian, v29 n4 p267-282 2010
Archival digital image collections are a relatively new phenomenon in college library archives. Digitizing archival image collections may make them accessible to users worldwide. There has been no study to explore whether collections on the Internet lead to users who are beyond the institution or a comparison of users to a national or international audience. This study of the Orang Asli Archive, a repository for anthropological, historical, journalistic, and other documentary sources relevant to Orang Asli peoples and cultures of Malaysia, examines the Web analytics of its digital archival image collections. (Contains 2 tables.)
