"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
"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." - C&RL News
