UM Library Launches Visual Resources Toolkit
Last winter, the University of Michigan Library and Press hosted a workshop called Describing Visual Resources in Arts and Humanities Publications. The purpose of the workshop was to engage invited experts, including DIAGRAM Product Manager Sue-Ann Ma and community members Sina Bahram and Bryan Gould, to collaborate with other groups concerned with describing visual resources. Event host Stephanie Rosen was thrilled to have DIAGRAM represented at the workshop, saying that our image description guidelines served as a model for their project throughout the process. This past September, Stephanie Rosen and her team published the outcomes and learnings that were gathered during the workshop and have created the Describing Visual Resources Toolkit. Not only is the DIAGRAM team excited to have influenced this work, but it is an excellent companion resource to our image description guidelines and we highly recommend checking it out!
