    Sailing into Metrics: Rethinking and Implementing Metrics and Assessment in Archives
    (DigitalCommons@UNO, 2016-11-08) Schindler, Amy
    In 2014, SAA and RBMS appointed joint task forces to address the challenges that archival repositories face related to metrics and assessment. The task forces are drafting proposed metrics and standards, but calls for how to implement data gathering continue. This session will share case studies on the implementation of data gathering from the ground up, metrics and assessment in instruction and reference, and identifying the best and most efficient ways to quantify resources for assessment and decision making. The session will also address the transition from manual data gathering to tools like Aeon and LibInsight and the administrative outcomes of these changes. Chair: Wesley Chenault, Virginia Commonwealth University Speakers: Adriana Cuervo, Rutgers University Jessica Lacher-Feldman, Louisiana State University Amy Schindler, University of Nebraska at Omaha

    Considering Color in Digital Images of Works of Art
    (2016) Goforth, Julie; Ray, Joyce
    This paper evaluates current practices in digital imaging of works of art and examines whether those practices result in colors that are as accurate as possible in relation to the original intention of the work. Currently, a standard color temperature is applied to digital images of works of art in order to facilitate consistent results among all users and mediums. This standard may not render the best color for individual works when compared to one that more accurately represents the conditions present when the work was created. This paper proposes that a set of color temperatures be defined that can be applied to general categories of art which will result in a more correct representation of the colors intended by the artist, when those intentions can be discovered or inferred. Determining the relevant data about the artist, materials used and conditions present when the work was created that affect the color temperature applied to the work should result in a digital image that can be considered a definitive image for archival and scholarly use but not necessarily a replacement for the current standard images used for web and print. In addition to the digital image, all documentation on how the illumination was determined and how the image was captured and manipulated should be saved with the image.
