Title:The advances of technology: A case study of two midwest academic slide libraries
Author(s):Crary, Shannon; Darcovich, Jane; Hull, Tracy; Watkin, Anna Maria
Subject(s):Libraries and technological change
Audiovisual materials
Abstract:This study focuses on the question of how willing and prepared slide libraries are for technological change. Many slide libraries are at various stages of development, and this fact could either facilitate or inhibit growth when it comes to implementing new technologies: in particular, digitized images in any of the available formats (CD-ROM, laser disc, or online). In this case study of two Midwest academic slide libraries, issues such as funding, size of the library, current technology usage, and knowledge of various technologies, were examined to determine their effects on advancement toward new and innovative systems. These issues were addressed in an in-depth interview process with slide librarians at two different academic institutions. Since digitized images are not yet being used in the slide libraries on which this study is based, interview questions focused on opinions, attitudes and expectations about the implementation of digitization.
