Description: Noted archivist and library educator Frederick Stielow provides a comprehensive guide to efficiently adding content to the Web -- and to creating Web-based descriptions and finding aids that will draw surfers to the library's, museum's, or other repository's Web site that houses them. All major digital approaches and languages -- SGML, XML, and EAD (Encoded Archival Description) -- as well as established descriptive standards such as the Dublin Core and Open URL are covered. Options for capturing images, sounds, and video resources and automated techniques for converting optical characters are explained step-by-step. As he did in his earlier critically acclaimed Creating Virtual Libraries. Stielow provides much more than just technical guidance: he also discusses how to integrate digital archives (and their associated records) with turnkey library automation systems and provides a thorough discussion of policies regarding what to digitize and post. Here is the ideal primer for project management and the perfect general guide for managing digital archives. [From publisher description.]
