Abstract: As digital initiatives in galleries, libraries, archives, and museums (GLAMs) have moved beyond simple projects presenting scanned representations of photographs and other two-dimensional objects, the need for resources on a more diverse array of digitization and digital humanities projects has become more and more apparent. Allen Foster and Pauline Rafferty have made a significant contribution addressing this need with Managing Digital Cultural Objects: Analysis, Discovery, and Retrieval, published by Facet Publishing in the United Kingdom and ALA-Neal-Schuman in the United States. This review is based on the U.K. version; the U.S. release has a different cover and a different layout, though the content seems to be identical.
