Digital Image Collections: Cataloging Data Model and Network Access

Davis, Stephen P.

This paper proposes a new, hierarchical metadata model for the description of digital images. It suggests developing an SGML-encoded bibliographic record that encapsulates both summary bibliographic information along with detailed hierarchical and version-related data. The record would also include links to the actual digital items, to other related bibliographic records or, in fact, to diverse, related digital objects (such as external electronic publications, databases, numeric files, etc.) The working designation SGML Catalog Record (SCR) is proposed for this new type of record.
