3rd Edition of FADGI Still Image Digitization Guidelines Published
From the Library of Congress:
The Federal Agencies Digital Guidelines Initiative (FADGI) Still Image Working Group has finalized the Third Edition of its influential Technical Guidelines for Digitizing Cultural Heritage Materials. The Working Group published a draft version of the Guidelines on the FADGI website in June 2022 for public review and comment.
The working group received dozens of comments and questions about the draft version during the public comment period. After the comment period closed in August 2022, the working group spent several months on additional review and revision to improve the Third Edition in response to the public reception of the draft. The final version was published on May 10, 2023.
This latest edition expands upon, and revises, content included in prior editions of the Guidelines published in 2010 and 2016. The Guidelines include information on the four components of a FADGI-conforming imaging program: technical imaging parameters, best practices, digital image conformance evaluation, and professional staff (new to this edition of the Guidelines).
