    Digital images for the information professional by Melissa M. Terras
    (Maney Publishing, 2010-03) Cronin, James G. R.; McCarty, Willard
    This book asks: how do digital images function as cultural artefacts? And how have these artefacts been appropriated and managed by libraries, galleries and museums, systems Terras defines as 'memory institutions'? Important themes emerge from these questions, principally, user experiences and their relationship with the 'memory institutions' of libraries, galleries and museums; the current proliferation of digital media tools via the Internet; and the role of the information professional as educator and interface between private users and public institutions.
