  • Digital Images for the Virginia Tech Digital Library
    McMillan, Gail; Burr, Annette; Worley, Gary M. (Virginia Tech, 1996-03-20)
    All images photographed or copied by a unit of Information Systems will be scanned and contributed to the Virginia Tech Digital Library. The digital images will be browsable and findable through word searching textual descriptors. The university community will be able to view digital images online according to fair use guidelines for nonprofit, academic libraries. They will be available for faculty to incorporate in their course materials and to students for study and research purposes. Outside the university community, not all digital images will be accessible via the Internet; some will only be available at library workstations and campus computer labs. There will be unlimited Internet access to digital images when the university owns the copyright. No one will be charged a fee to view thumbnails, but there will be a charge to have a reproduction made and this will have implications for the electronic billing tactical plan.
