Call for Authors: Monograph about Digital Image Collections

Primary Research Group, www.Primaryresearch.com, is seeking a librarian/author
to write a monograph of approximately 10,000 words on how academic libraries
are managing major digital image collections.  The collections may be medical/
scientific, artistic, historical, data visualizations or any other kind of
image collection.  The author will profile the efforts of 4 organizations,
predominantly but not exclusively research universities, focusing on issues
such as: image housing and processing software and applications, internal
search engines, access, metadata,  preservation, copyright, use restrictions &
security, use in education and scholarship, marketing and distribution,
relations with institutional digital repositories and if applicable, sales and
licensing of the images. The author will have considerable scope to shape the
interviews as he or she sees fit. In addition to the profiles, the author will
conduct a literature search and augment the findings in the profiles with
insights from the existing literature. This is a compensated assignment.  To
inquire or apply, send cover letter and resume to jmoses@primaryresearch.com.
