Searching Digital Image Libraries

Parker, Julie J.S.


Keyword(s): web; digital image library; image searches; keyword search; collaborative problem solving; human interaction

Abstract: Publications such as consumer magazines rely heavily on image libraries as sources for the images they publish in their issues. Traditionally, magazine staff discuss their image requirements over the telephone with library staff and the library conducts the search. Many libraries have now developed Web sites allowing their customers to search for images themselves. However this survey found that these digital libraries are not popular with magazine staff, who continue to prefer the traditional means of contact. The reasons for this preference, and the reasons it is unlikely to change are explored.
