Part III
Analog—Existing
Distribution Methods

This section examines the cost centers and circulation patterns of analog slide libraries. In Chapter 4, The Costs of Distributing Analog Images by University Slide Libraries, we present the costs of making an image and its metadata available. The data was gathered from a survey administered to six university slide libraries. Chapter 5, The Patterns of Slide Library Circulation: A Study, presents the circulation statistics from four slide libraries. Both studies of these existing image distribution systems serve as benchmarks for the evaluation of future digital distribution systems.
