PressestimmenWhether overseeing a digital project for a historical agency, engaging in scholarly research, or researching a family history, both the novice and the computer savvy will find in Digital Imaging the background and methodologies that can provide a solid basis for pursuing research in state and local history. The Annals Of Iowa Digital Imaging is directly applicable to library situations. The information in this book is useful for digital services professionals, collection managers, curators, museum directors, and exhibit designers. Koelling writes knowlingly about the 'endless struggle to keep the object alive' as preservation issues and image format changes arise. These are extremely challenging issues for libarians. As the title implies, however, the book is solely about imaging and does not include audio and visual streaming. Next book, Ms. Koelling? The Serials Librarian ...very informative work...the book is a worthwhile investment for those who are about to embark on a digitizing project and have no idea where to start or whom to contact for assistance. -- Sharon Silengo State Historical Society Of North Dakota Koelling's conversational style makes the book flow well and it includes something for museums and institutions of all sizes. The examples she gives to illustrate her points are easy to understand. I would recommend this book to anyone who has been considering beginning a digital imaging program and is somewhat familiar with the technology and equipment involved. -- Sarah Polak, Director of the Mari Sandoz High Plains Heritage Center and Digital Imaging Laboratory at Chadron State College Nebraska History
