THE COST OF DIGITAL IMAGE DISTRIBUTION
Social and Economic Implications of the Production, Distribution and Usage
By Howard Besser & Robert Yamashita
A Mellon Foundation grant was awarded to UC Berkeley to study the costs and benefits of the networked distribution of digital museum information for educational use. This study takes advantage of the existing collaboration between the seven cultural repositories and seven universities that make up the Museum Education Site License Project (MESL), and utilizes professionals from the participating MESL institutions as well as the communications and collaborative structures that MESL established.
