dpBestflow is short for Digital Photography Best Practices and Workflow.
In August of 2007, the Library of Congress, through its National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP), awarded eight private-sector organizations funds to conduct research into the preservation of commercial digital artwork. The American Society of Media Photographers received a major award to fund a three-year project, dpBestflow.
There are three components to the dpBestflow project.
1.) A book, I co-authored with Patricia Russotti, a professor at Rochester Institute of Technology called Digital Photography Best Practices and Workflow Handbook, (Focal Press, 2009).
2.) A web site called dpBestflow.org , which is filled with information from the dpBestflow Handbook, and Peter Krogh’s The DAM Book (O’Reilly Media, 2009).
3.) A traveling seminar series designed to enhance your workflow and provide you with the tools for proper preservation of your images.
The dpBestflow.org site will be going live on November 11. Everyone on the project team is excited and proud to bring this important resource to completion. We have high hopes that the information in dpBestflow will make your workflow easier and more efficient, lead to better cooperation within the larger graphic arts community, as well as, help the Library of Congress achieve its goal of preserving our digital cultural heritage far into the future.
