Guidelines: Content Categories & Digitization Objectives
Still Image Working Group
This subgroup has drafted objectives for the digital reformatting of printed matter, documents and manuscripts, pictorial and fine art content. The content categories are defined in terms of the "physical" items found in many library and archive collections. Each category is then associated with reformatting objectives expressed as “use cases”, followed by recommended specifications for each.
Updated by Working Groups – September 3, 2009
The Working Group believes that its guidelines should be based on clearly articulated objectives describing the expected uses of the digitized content. This presentation was drafted by the Categories and Objectives Sub-Group. Each of the 23 content subcategories is associated with reformatting objectives, i.e., the objectives of the organizations that carry out the digitizing and, equally important, the objectives of the endusers who will consult or use the images in their work.
