ACADI members’ meeting notes December 2012

December 19, 2012

Many thanks to Maureen for a stimulating and useful meeting at The Department of History of Art at the University of Warwick. It was good to see everyone and the hospitality was memorable!

We talked about…

ACADI Reports on developments: image resources, use of social media, changing visual resources roles, ACADI membership and the ACADI blog

Copyright  The imminent implementation of the Hargreaves Review.  CLA Licence news. The Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill 2012-13 (ERRA)

Proposal for a specimen slide library   Archival advantages of analogue collections over digital. The history of art history teaching.  Current  interest from researchers and artists in slide libraries, codes and collecting.

Preservation of photographs and related material A possible archive collection of  slide-supplier catalogues and related material.

Image resources and presentation tools Brief reports from members on the status of their collections, image management tools and other news.

We were given an  online demonstration of Warwick University’s  image bank which operates with the CONTENTdm image management system.

The minutes will be posted in the members’ area in due course

New to ACADI? | What’s a blog?


Public face of ACADI

August 7, 2008

Currently we have an out-of-date website, and a private wiki. However it would be good to maybe replace both of these with this blog. Please add comments to this post.

Advantages: blog is free, public face as well as private password protected areas
Disadvantages: a limit on amount of content you can upload – I think this is 3Gb – which is fine, since images can be kept in the Flickr account instead of the ACADI media library
