More Than Meets the Eye?  Retrieving Art Images by Subject - Organizer and Moderator: Karen Kessel, Art and Art History Department, Sonoma State University

Speakers: Patricia Harpring, Getty Vocabulary Program; Judy Weedman, San Jose State University School of Library and Information Science; Dustin Wees, ARTstor; Hans Brandhorst, Iconclass


Abstract: In the past, image collection curators, with limited staffing, urgent deadlines, lack of authority sources, and the broad range of subjects their collections represent, found little time for indexing their materials by subject. As we develop shared online cataloging with other collections and with libraries, we should have more time and incentive to engage in subject indexing to enable access to a broader group of users.  The panelists will define subject indexing, discuss why it is important, describe some of the challenges in applying subject terms, but also demonstrate how we can create effective tools to make it easier to do.
