> The Public Record Office will be hosting a conference in September 2000 as
> part of the project Safeguarding European Photographic Images for Access
> (SEPIA) funded under the European Union’s Framework Programme in support of
> Culture. The conference’s aim will be to bring together those responsible
> for photographic collections (such as curators, librarians and
> conservators) and experts in photography and digital imaging. The focus
> will be on issues that must be considered in increasing Europe-wide access
> to collections of photographic materials while ensuring the preservation of
> those same materials for future generations.
>
> Image digitisation has had a dramatic impact on the ability of institutions
> holding photographic collections to reach out to all sectors of society,
> and policy-makers at both national and European levels are keen to see it
> employed on a large scale. Many people have been unaware until now of the
> wealth of material being preserved, often at public expense, and of the
> images of an often vanished world that are available for them to see and
> use. Institutions can now grant unheard-of remote access as an extension to
> their on-site reading facilities while reducing the handling and
> environmental changes that result in damage to precious and fragile
> originals. The apparent simplicity of the process is misleading, though,
> and may lead to expensive mistakes and disappointing results. Projects
> still need careful preparation, and expertise from both traditional and
> digital environments has to be shared.
>
> The conference will look at issues like:
> - how to reconcile the varying requirements and exploit the differing
> skills of libraries, museums and archives
> - aims of digitisation
> - technical requirements, image quality, image enhancement
> - selection criteria, user requirements
> - preservation of originals in relation to digitisation
> - cataloguing, descriptive methods, metadata, long-term management of
> digital images
> - workflow, costs, organisational issues, training
>
> Speakers will be experts from Europe and the USA. Apart from plenary
> papers, there will be small group sessions on topics like: conservation and
> preservation measures for large collections of original photographs;
> requirements for digital imaging; the ethics of digital
> imaging/enhancement/restoration and copyright. A trade exhibition of
> suppliers of relevant products will be organised, and one afternoon will be
> spent visiting institutions with significant photographic collections and
> expertise in their preservation.
