The refinement of non-invasive imaging provides new layers of scholarly and preservation data by capturing images of heritage materials in distinct wavebands of the visible and non-visible spectrum. Advancing these capabilities has allowed new interpretations of such important historical documents as those of the U.S. founding fathers documents. Image processing of large datasets generate a wealth of information, and require careful consideration of the metadata and processing to ensure no that no false imaging artifacts are produced. These imaging technologies have been expanded to gather a range of preservation information including the non-invasive characterization of colorants, and comparative ink analysis. A further advantage is the ability to undertake predictive assessment of the impact of environment and treatments. Baseline imaging allows for more data-driven decisions to be made for exhibition, and conservation treatments for stabilization.

More about this publication?
  • 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.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in pertuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
