Digital Image Database Standards Checklist: Technical, Functional, Content, & Access Recommendations

Research & Reports,


The Digital Image Database Standards Checklist (DIDSC) may be used as a guide to determine whether a particular electronic image product is appropriate for your library, campus, museum, or other institution. Although designed to evaluate image databases that are content repositories with asset management and presentation functionalities, portions of the checklist may be used independently to assess products with fewer capabilities. The DIDSC itself may be modified, expanded, or augmented to accommodate local needs; institutions are encouraged to tailor this document to suit individual application.
