Existing research into accessing digital image collections?

Dear all,I'm currently looking at the prospect of initiating a digital humanities initiative on the subject of accessing digital photograph collections. Can anyone point me towards similar such work which is innovative and already taking place? I'm aware of (and involved with!) the good work being done at DeMontfort Uni. The project we are looking at will be based on the premise of looking at the materiality and characteristics of digital photographs rather than working with accompanying…See More

Profile Information

A little about myself and our collection:

In May of 2008 I emigrated from Canada to take up the role of Photographic Archivist in the Special Collections Department of the University of St Andrews Library. I am enjoying exploring all this collection has to offer, and am presently focused on establishing new ways to create access in order to share its great wealth with researchers and a broader audience.

Our collection now encompasses over 700,000 photographs including many topographic views of Scotland and the British Isles, representing diverse aspects cultural transformation from the 1840s onward. In addition to historic views of Scotland, our holdings have been developed in support of the University’s academic curricula, and boast many albums, travel views, private collections, and of course images from the formative days of photographic practice.

The next few years will be devoted to mining our many hidden riches and resources, modernising our management and access to the collection, and building collaborative relationships with colleagues and institutions throughout the UK and abroad.

If anyone is interested in learning more about our collection or would like to conduct research in person, please feel free to contact me at your leisure.

To obtain an overview of our holdings, please take the opportunity to consult our online database at: http://special.st-andrews.ac.uk/saspecial/index.php
This online resource represents 10% of our collection but functions as an excellent starting point for most research. Greater internet access to our collections and supporting documentation will be available when we implement a new more extensive and user-friendly online system in the autumn of 2011.

Yours sincerely,
