Digital Quality


Statement:

Producers of electronic content should adhere; at a minimum; to the specifications for page image and machine-readable text masters outlined in the Digital Library Federation (DLF) document Benchmark for Faithful Digital Reproductions of Monographs and Serials. If those benchmarks are updated in the future, content producers should adjust their processes to meet those revised benchmarks.

Rationale:

Users of the conference output are right to expect a certain minimum level of quality in all products they use in the course of their research. For an electronic product, this means text and graphics must be sharp and legible in electronic form, and if a paper copy is produced from the electronic, that copy should be comparable to the quality of the original format.

Best practices:
