Abstracts:

Image Discovery Week: a holistic approach to marketing image resources (Barbara Brenny, North Carolina State University): Barbara Brenny, Visual Resources Librarian, will be discussing how the Design Library branch at North Carolina State University collaborated with the Special Collections Research Center at the main library to promote the image-based digital collections and other image resources available to faculty, staff, and students. 

 

The Orang Asli Archives: Visual Resources & Geo-Tagging (Rodney Obien and Kara Young, Keene State College): The Wallace E. Mason Library of Keene State College began in 2010 a project to research the application of geo-tagging in providing search and retrieval access to the visual resources of its Orang Asli Archives (OAA), one of the world’s largest research collections on the indigenous peoples of Peninsular Malaysia. The presentation will provide an overview of the research and work to integrate Mason Library's existing digital asset management, CONTENTdm, with current and viable Web 2.0 geo-tagging applications. 

 

What the Heart Remembers: The Women and Children of Darfur (Audrey Powers and Barbara Lewis, University of South Florida Libraries): The development of a performance piece, What the Heart Remembers: The Women and Children of Darfur was inspired by original materials depicting the atrocities of genocide in Darfur and promoted the Library’s resources and initiatives.  This presentation includes the development of a web presence for these materials, digital image management, technology related to the visual arts, faculty outreach, and multidisciplinary collaboration. 

 

From Filing Cabinet to iPhone: How Collaboration and Technology can Introduce Photo Collections to New Audiences (Deborah Boyer, Azavea):  PhillyHistory.org, a project of the Philadelphia Department of Records, is a free online public database that provides access to over 90,000 historic photographs and maps from five Philadelphia organizations. Through PhillyHistory.org, the organizations were able to combine resources; gain access to features such as geographic search, mobile technology, and e-commerce; and promote their collections to new audiences. 

 

Library Instruction in No Time! (Amy Trendler, Ball State University): Designing effective but brief instruction sessions is a necessary skill for those librarians and visual resources curators who have limited time with students in the classroom. Examples presented will illustrate how this approach was applied to instruction sessions for first year students and graduate students in environmental design.
