Posted on Tue, 09/23/2014 - 11:46
This guide provides basic information on the storage and preservation of digitally-printed photographs in scholarly and cultural collections. While there are many printing technologies for output from computers, this guide focuses on the three most popular forms of image (i.e. pictorial) hardcopy:
• Inkjet
• Digital electrophotography
• Dye sublimation
Information on recommended storage conditions, selection of housing and framing materials, proper handling and display are included. Collection care personnel in cultural
institutions are the intended audience for this guide, however, it will also be useful to photographers, artists, and the general public.
