Managing Digital Cultural Objects : Analysis, discovery and retrieval Hardback

Edited by Allen Foster, Pauline Rafferty

Hardback

Description

This book explores the analysis and interpretation, discovery and retrieval of a variety of non-textual objects, including image, music and moving image.

Bringing together chapters written by leading experts in the field, this book provides an overview of the theoretical and academic aspects of digital cultural documentation and considers both technical and strategic issues relating to cultural heritage projects, digital asset management and sustainability.

Managing Digital Cultural Objects: Analysis, discovery and retrieval draws from disciplines including information retrieval, library and information science (LIS), digital preservation, digital humanities, cultural theory, digital media studies and art history.

It's argued that this multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approach is both necessary and useful in the age of the ubiquitous and mobile Web.

Key topics covered include: * Managing, searching and finding digital cultural objects * Data modelling for analysis, discovery and retrieval * Social media data as a historical source * Visual digital humanities * Digital preservation of audio content * Searching and creating affinities in web music collections * Film retrieval on the web.

Readership: The book will provide inspiration for students seeking to develop creative and innovative research projects at Masters and PhD levels and will be essential reading for those studying digital cultural object management as well as practitioners in the field.
