  • Also interested in assessing how a change in the way museums think about publishing might impact institutional structures
  • Core of our discussions: the importance of contributing vital scholarship to the field and subjecting our online catalogue to the same academic rigor, curatorial insight, and editorial professionalism as its printed counterparts.
  • Just because an image worked inline doesn’t mean it was the proper image to use.

    7. 7. Early Takeaways• Digital Images – registration issues with layered images – preparing images requires more knowledge of usage, placement, etc. for optimization – Address with a ‘Digital Style Guide’• Workflow – With access to the publication-in-progress, expectations that changes were possible, leading to re-writes – Expectation that changes would be instantaneous – Address with mapping of workflow and galley-like schedules
    8. 8. The Dream…Scholarly Research and Publishing Ecosystem incorporating these scholarly tools into ourcollection management system, CITI, to make itan active agent and repository of the continuous scholarly efforts.
