“Visual Indexes” and Standardized Storage for Large Collections of 35mm Slides
35mm slide collections often overwhelm institutions that would like to accept them but do not have resources for item-level cataloging and access. An approach to storage and collection-level access by way of systematic sleeving and photography of groups of slides provides visual access to the image content of slides while maintaining the collection's physical safety. PDF format documents containing images of slide groups allows distribution and remote viewing of collection content without item-level cataloging or in-person physical inspection.
