Local Image Collections

This is a selected list of local image collections compiled by Howard Besser. An assignment for his Fall 1995 Image Database Class requires groups of students to visit, review, and report back to the class about how one of these collections (or another collection approved by the instructor) organizes and manages their visual information. In addition, many students will want to do follow-up papers or projects with the collections they visit and review. A list of sites actually visited is also available.

Ann Arbor area collections

Here are collections in the Ann Arbor or Detroit area:

Berkeley area collections

We are hoping to set up some distance learning facilities so that Ann Arbor students can work with collections on the UC Berkeley campus. Berkeley's Museum Informatics Project is planning to assign a coordinator specifically to deal with (and evaluate) communication between Ann Arbor students and staff from Berkeley collections.
