ne of the joys of being all digital is that color images
no longer break the budget of the Bulletin. We can now do
justice to topics like visualization and visual search, which are
the subjects of this month’s special section sponsored by
ASIS&T Special Interest Group/Visualization, Images and
Sound (SIG/VIS). Guest editor Diane Neal has assembled five
articles under the general heading: Visual Representation,
Search and Retrieval: Ways of Seeing, including contributions
on visual search, visualization services in libraries, film analysis
and visualization in self-surveillance. They range from reports
of current projects in libraries and archives to speculation about
the future of image metadata and search technology. Since there
are few areas of research in our field that are as important and
challenging as working with images and visualizations, we hope
you will find something here that is interesting and inspiring.
Another major challenge is the change in cataloging theory,
practice and systems that will result if libraries adopt Resource
Description and Access (RDA), the proposed replacement for
the Anglo-American Cataloging Rules (AACR). Shawne Miksa,
who is the current chair of the American Library Association’s
RDA Implementation Task Force, compares the approach
taken by the two codes and suggests topics for further research
generated by the adoption discussions.
