Images for academic publishing

Working closely with the staff at the Metropolitan, ARTstor began to build Images for Academic Publishing (IAP) tomeet the museum’s specifications. ARTstor Images for Academic Publishing: (External Link) . The project comprised the preparation of image assets and corresponding metadata, inclusion of theseassets in the ARTstor Digital Library, and the development of a new protocol for user download of publication-quality images.

Data preparation

The Metropolitan Museum staff decided to express information about their objects using CDWA-Lite, CDWA-Lite: (External Link) . an XML data schema developed as a joint effort between the J. Paul Getty Trust, J. Paul Getty Trust: (External Link) . RLG Programs/OCLC, OCLC/RLG: (External Link) . and ARTstor for describing cultural works and their visual surrogates. CDWA-Lite, based on a small subset of fields from the Categories forthe Description of Works of Art (CDWA), represents the minimal set of data fields deemed necessary for describing cultural works and their visualsurrogates in preparation for resource discovery in online environments. CDWA- Lite is intentionally “light” to lower the barrier for cultural heritageinstitutions wishing to share content. The CDWA-Lite schema is designed to be used with the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting: (External Link) . that facilitates the sharing and updating of information between the provider and the distributor. Once MediaBin was fully implemented, theMetropolitan Museum staff and ARTstor began sharing the information formatted according to CDWA-Lite and harvested in a server-to-server exchange. As of December 2008, harvesting data from the Metropolitan Museum to ARTstor was temporarily suspended due to errors in object content, problemsarising from group shot photography, and other data anomalies. Depending on number and file size, the high-resolution images can be retrievedfrom an FTP server or sent by overnight mail on a high-density drive.

Functionality

ARTstor’s Images for Academic Publishing was launched in March 2007 and functions as follows:

  • An IAP logo appears under the thumbnail images contributed by the Metropolitan Museum to identify those images available for high-resolutiondownloading.
  • After clicking an “IAP” image, users receive a message alerting them to a new “space” governed by the terms and conditions of TheMetropolitan Museum of Art, not ARTstor.
  • Terms and Conditions of Use: educational use and scholarly publications are permitted; The Metropolitan Museum of Art decided that thepublication run must be two thousand or fewer; no more than ten images per thirty-day period are allowed for any user; This limitation is under review by the Metropolitan Museum. electronic use is permitted on educational websites that do not accept advertisements andcommercial subscription websites with no more than two thousand subscribers. Metropolitan Museum IAP Terms and Conditions for Use: (External Link) .
  • An electronic form appears requesting some information that the Metropolitan Museum requires and some that is requested but not required:
    • Contact information: name, email address, institutional affiliation, title/role (all required).
    • Publication information: author, title, periodical title, intended date of publication, language of publication, regional distribution,publication format (print, electronic, or video)(all requested, not required). The Metropolitan Museum is reviewing what information should be required on the ARTstor IAP form.
    • File size: users select size of image for downloading, either 5MB, 10MB, or 20MB (all required).
  • The image can then be immediately downloaded and saved.
