Overview

If you want to convert a collection of images into a computer database, organize access to sound recordings through a Web browser or store a company's archives in one searchable computerized structure, the database must be set up so that users can find what they want and make maximum use of the information it holds. Mary Burke provides much-needed guidance on organizing such information for effective retrieval whether from local, stand-alone computers or remote networked databases. Organization of Multimedia Resources is exceptional in drawing together the complementary principles of information retrieval and multimedia database design. It is aimed at undergraduate and postgraduate students of information science, electronic publishing, records management and librarianship, and at computer science students and researchers.
