Recent notable efforts to establish new technical standards and best practices for digital imaging, including the Federal Agency Digitization Guidelines Initiative in the United States and the Metamorfoze effort in the Netherlands, present important educational challenges and perhaps one of the biggest opportunities for the imaging science community to increase the level of imaging literacy in the ranks of new and upcoming cultural heritage professionals. This paper establishes the contexts for and presents the preliminary results of an educational exercise on digitization quality carried out in collaboration between academia and industry. A graduate level course introduces students to emerging standards and best practices and reinforces this information with training in the use of the GoldenThread image quality software via a server-based “virtual laboratory” environment. Recognizing that improvements in teaching imaging concepts are also needed, we present examples from an image quality interpretation manual developed to complement classroom discussion and laboratory exercises.

  • The IS&T (digital) Archiving Conference offers a unique opportunity for imaging scientists and those working in the cultural heritage community (curators, archivists, librarians, photographers etc) from around the world to come together to discuss the most pressing issues related to the digital preservation and stewardship of hardcopy, and other cultural heritage documents and objects. Authors come from museums, archives, libraries, government institutions, industry and academia. Cutting edge topics related to multispectral and 3D imaging, as well as best practices for workflow, sharing, standards, and asset/collection management and dissemination are explored in papers presented at this annual, international event.
