There’s a fascinating entry on the ArLiSNAP bog that discusses the vocabulary we use when describing images. In many cases we only get a few words to describe a complex image, and furthermore we need to operate within a controlled vocabulary. The entry links to ANOTHER discussion about labeling from the Jane Addams Hull House Museum, which is interesting in part because the museum is asking interested parties to comment on a selection of different labels for one painting – an interesting democratic approach to labeling.
