This course is for managers who have been assigned to manage a document
imaging system or digital library, and must start immediately.  Students
will gain an understanding of how document imaging can be used and managed
in both small and large scale organizations.  Document imaging is the
process of taking documents out of file cabinets, and off shelves, and
storing them in a computer.  This course provides an understanding of the
details that there is often no time to review in the rush to implement a
system.  Students will learn about the technology of scanning, importing,
transmitting, organizing, indexing, storing, protecting, locating,
retrieving, viewing, printing, and preserving documents for document
imaging systems and digital libraries.  Image and document formats,
metadata, multimedia, rich text, PDF (Portable Document Format), GIS
(Geographic Information Systems), CAD (Computer Aided Design), virtual
reality indices, and image enabled databases will be discussed.  System
design issues in hardware, software, ergonomics, and workflow will be
covered.  Emerging technologies such as the DVD Digital Video Disk and very
high speed Internet, intranet, and extranet links and protocols will be
discussed.  The course will include the DVD's role in completing the
merging to the PC and television, the merging of telephony, cable, and the
Internet, the merging of home and office, the merging of business and
entertainment, and the management of the resulting document types. Many
professionals including records managers, librarians, and archivists work
with document management issues every day.  While not limited to these
professionals, this course builds on the broad range of tools and
techniques that exist in these professions.  The class content is designed
so that students can benefit from each part of the class without fully
understanding every technical detail presented.  This course is designed
for non-technical professionals.  Several system designs will be done based
on system requirements provided by the students.

The following is an example of the materials available at

papers that describe various document management topics in prose.

Computer storage requirements for various digitized document types.

1 scanned page (8 1/2 by 11 inches, A4) = 50 KiloBytes (KByte) (on average,
black & white, CCITT G4 compressed)

1 file cabinet (4 drawer) (10,000 pages on average) = 500 MegaBytes (MByte)
= 1 CD (ROM or WORM)

2 file cabinets = 1,000 MBytes = 1 GigaByte (GByte);   10 file cabinets = 1

2,000 file cabinets = 1,000 GigaBytes = 1 TeraByte (TByte);   2,000 file
cabinets = 200 DVDs

1 box (in inches: 12 wide x 15 long x 9.5 deep) (2,500 pages) = 1 file
drawer = 2 linear feet of files = 125 Mbytes

8 boxes = 16 linear feet = 2 file cabinets = 1 GByte;   8,000  boxes =
16,000  linear feet = 1,000 GBytes = 1 TByte
