Abstract

This article investigates the challenges of creating online research collections, specifically for photographic objects. This examination considers the material aspects of the photograph and considers the manner in which they may be made accessible within a web resource. The article explores the challenges of attributing metadata for visual resources in an attempt to address some of the key issues in the production of resources in the Digital Humanities.
