Digitization and preservation resources

Today I thought I’d provide links to a few resources that provide (free) technical information for the preservation and digitization of images:

For technical specifications related to image digitization, you can’t go wrong with the Federal Agencies Digitization Guidelines Initiative (FADGI): it’s developed by the Library of Congress, the National Archives, and the National Gallery of Art (among others): LINK to still image digitization; LINK to list of digitization guidelines for film, audio-visual, etc.

For preserving physical objects such as photographs, check out the numerous free publications available from the Image Permanence Institute (IPI): LINK

Finally, for a good overview of all aspects of image management (both physical and digital), have a look at the leaflets provided by the Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC): LINK
