Though largely confined to text-based resources through much of its history, Knowledge Organization has always had to cope with visual materials. Art galleries, photo libraries, film and video collections have hitherto largely ‘done their own thing’, adapting techniques designed for textual resources to visual content. However, it can be argued that communication today places as much emphasis upon visual materials as upon text and that visual materials need special attention.

 

In the first session, this event examines some examples of current best practice: in image collection cataloguing, in IPR management for images and in the use of a standards-based approach to a national film collection. In the second session, three speakers will describe how computer-based image analysis and crowdsourcing techniques are being investigated as a means of by-passing the bottleneck posed by the need for human cataloguing and indexing. The afternoon will end with a Panel Q&A session followed by a wine-and-nibbles fueled networking
