Course Description
Cultural heritage institutions worldwide are making their treasures available on the internet for all to discover. Essential to this effort is the accuracy of the digitization in the area of color. This course covers the fundamentals of color science and their practical implementation in a FADGI imaging framework to help institutions of all sizes and capabilities achieve this goal. The guidance published by FADGI provides a roadmap to successful, quality digitization, regardless of the size of your digitization budget. This course assists in identifying the most appropriate approach for your institution, and provides practical solutions that are appropriate for programs at any level. The program includes a heavy dose of color science principals and applications, and practical information developed from years of digitization experience at the Library of Congress.

Intended Audience: Managers, engineers, and technicians working in color management and/or digitization operations. This includes manufacturers, service providers, and content custodians. Some knowledge of digital capture technologies is helpful, but not necessary.

David R Wyble is the founder and president of Avian Rochester, and since 2010 has provided color and imaging consulting, as well as physical targets and measurements, for digitization.

Thomas Rieger is the manager of digitization services at the Library of Congress, editor of the 2016 FADGI Technical Guidelines, and a member of ISO Photography Technical Committees. Rieger was previously director of imaging services at NEDCC, and an industry consultant.
