Title: Digital Image access in an educational environment
Author: Pitkin, Patricia
Abstract: The thesis Digital Image Access in an Educational Environment explores multiple approaches to image system design and deployment in the academic setting. This discourse chronicles the issues, options, design considerations, technical challenges, and organizational and social factors inherent in Internet and network access to, and use of, collections of high-resolution digital images in the university environment. Discussion focuses upon advances undertaken or participated in at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) by Wallace Library to provide digital image access to the RIT community. Efforts include the development of a local image system, the beta testing of a national image delivery system and the purchase of commercial image systems. While this examination details one institution's foray into encouraging a change through digital image systems experimentation and implementation, as an enhancement to campus-based and distance education curriculum, it is intended to inform other educational institutions in their approach to the same issue.
