Metadata for Digital Still Images

Automatic Exposure - Capturing Technical Metadata for Digital Still Images is an RLG
Initiative, supported by the Consortium for Interchange of Museum Information (CIMI), the Digital Library Federation (DLF), and the Museum Computer Network (MCN).
The RLG initiative Automatic Exposure – Capturing Technical Metadata for Digital Still Images seeks to minimize the cost of technical metadata acquisition and maximize the cultural heritage community's capability of ensuring long-term access to digital assets. The goal of the initiative is to lower the barrier for institutions to capture the data elements proposed by NISO Z39.87: Technical Metadata for Digital Still Images [Draft Standard for Trial Use].1 NISO Z39.87 defines a standard, comprehensive set of data elements key to an institution's ability to manage and preserve its digital images.
