This announcement is sent to multiple lists - apologies for cross-posting.
The European Commission on Preservation and Access (ECPA) just published the report `SEPIADES. Cataloguing photographic collections'. It aims to provide background information on the SEPIADES (SEPIA Data Element Set) advisory report and software tool that were developed in the framework of the SEPIA programme. SEPIA stands for 'Safeguarding European Photographic Images for Access' (SEPIA) (www.knaw.nl/ecpa/sepia).
SEPIADES is a multi-level data element set to catalogue photographic collections. Apart from 21 core elements, it contains many suggestions for use of specific, detailed elements. The report explains about the motives behind SEPIADES, providing an introduction to both the model and the software tool. It is aimed at all those involved in cataloguing photographic collections, both cataloguers and decision makers.
Copies of the report can be ordered on-line (16 euros plus postage and handling costs*) or downloaded from the ECPA website free of charge, see http://www.knaw.nl/ecpa/publications.html
