As digital access blurs the lines among archives, libraries, and museums and the materials that make up their collections, visual materials arguably have taken center stage. Given differing standards, best practices, and systems among these professions, the speakers explore how different institutions have made efforts to provide meaningful and robust relationships between still image collections and related records, library, and art object collections using a multitude of platforms and/or involving collaboration with other institutions.
