SharePoint picture library as a searchable photo database in a small library: a program description

Tanya Harron

Abstract


In the digital age, librarians are being consulted on unique projects that are outside of the traditional role of responding to information requests.   This paper examines the role of a solo health librarian who was tasked with locating and creating a digital photo database for her organization’s small collection of digital photographs, clipart and logos.  This paper discusses the selection of SharePoint picture library as the organization’s photo repository, the steps taken by the librarian to create the database, issues with cataloguing the collection, and pros and cons of the software

Keywords


Sharepoint; photograph collection; photo collection; picture library
