Editorial Reviews

Review

"A number of handbooks have been written to help librarians expand their digital resources, but until now none have focused on the semantic, semiotic, and syntactical underpinnings that define, describe, and contextualize collected images. Those who work predominantly with digital images will fine a few provocative ideas and exercises in this book, well-illustrated with photos taken by the authors and their families."

"In this essential and noteworthy publication, intended for anyone who avocationally or vocationally engages with image collections, experienced experts, Greisdorf and O'Connor attempt to set forth an interdisciplinary foundation for establishing image collections so they can be accessed and retrieved. Highly recommended, particularly for large public and academic libraries."

IFLA Acquisitions & Development Newsletter



"In both practical and philosophical ways, this book examines the almost infinite number of images that people collect as well as the many different ways that image collections can be arranged and managed. . . . This book contains a wealth of photographs to illustrate the many issues of image collection management. The book would provide excellent discussion points for a graduate level class in library science or museum studies."

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
an excellent book - I bought it for the wrong reason. I thought it would be a collection of images, but it turns out to be a somewhat scholarly text. It is well written, however, and quite interesting.

Format: Paperback
People collect images, all sorts of images, and we collect them for all sorts of reasons. In both practical and philosophical ways, this book examines the almost infinite number of images that people collect as well as the many different ways that image collections can be arranged and managed. Just as early man gathered drawings of horses on prehistoric cave walls, today we collect billions of electronic images from digital cameras and cell phones and we find that the old methods of collecting, organizing and using images are not appropriate for the vast amounts of images that exist today. Image collections are quite different from other collections, just as a photograph is quite unlike a word. The authors provide an interdisciplinary approach for collecting images and organizing image collections. For any given image, probably any two viewers will see something quite different from one another, and probably the image will have quite a different meaning for each of the viewers. This book contains a wealth of photographs to illustrate the many issues of image collection management and the book would provide excellent discussion points for a graduate level class in library science or museum studies.
