Practical quality control procedures for digital imaging projects


Purpose – Formal quality review processes are a necessary part of any digital imaging workflow. This article illustrates a set of quality review processes implemented in the Indiana University Digital Library Program’s Digital Media and Image Center. Design/methodology/approach – A methodology for automatic batch review of large numbers of images is presented, along with rationale and procedures for supplemental visual review. The initial stages of an effort to further automate and centralize image quality control at Indiana University are described. Findings – Automation of checks for objective image criteria, together with formal visual review of a sample of digitized images, is an effective means of implementing a quality review process. Originality/value – The methodologies described can be used as a model for other institutions performing digital imaging projects of any size.
