***This message is being posted to several lists; please excuse any

A well-regarded publication for digital imaging projects and
programs is now available:

   "Moving Theory into Practice: Digital Imaging for
   Libraries and Archives," Anne R. Kenney and Oya Y.
   Rieger, editors and principal authors (Mountain View, CA:
   Research Libraries Group, 2000). 189 pp., illus. ISBN
   0-9700225-0-6

Addressed to funders, managers, librarians, archivists, curators,
system analysts, programmers, administrators, faculty, and other
scholars, this new publication from RLG is a self-help reference
for virtually any institution that chooses to reformat cultural
resources to digital image form.

"Moving Theory into Practice" focuses on an interdependent circle
of considerations associated with digital imaging programs in
cultural institutions -- from selection to access to preservation
-- with a heavy emphasis on the intersection of institutional
objectives and practical digital applications.

The book is designed to provide timely guidance in a complex and
changing arena, bringing to bear the contributions of more than
40 experts. Integrated with the book's nine chapters, some thirty
sidebars highlight major issues, point out pertinent research
trends, and identify relevant emerging technologies and
techniques.

"Beyond its many virtues -- well-researched, well-written,
well-presented, relevant -- is a simple principle: present the
best technical knowledge currently around, but know that
technical knowledge is not enough. This book says that
digitisation is all about decisions. ...It stimulates us to
recognise the decisions we have to make, while helping us to
think them through." (Colin Webb, National Library of
Australia)

"This work is an honest, clear, well-written, and realistic
appraisal of all aspects of the digitization process.... It is
informed, hardheaded, and certain to become the key resource for
anyone planning digitization and digital library projects in this
decade." (Marilyn Deegan, University of Oxford)

"...Authoritative and informative essays with practical advice
and case histories from dozens of digital imaging projects world
wide. This book is a 'must read' for any librarian or archivist
tackling a digital imaging project." (Roy Tennant, University of
California, Berkeley)
