Abstract :
Examines the potential of Web-based image collections. The problem of obtaining high quality digitised images is noted. The enormous advantage and potential of the Web for exchange and collaboration is stressed, as well as access. The project's websites are intended for educational use, and their images are intended to be downloaded by teachers and students. This in part represents a response to the 'increasing commercialisation' of the Web. Two collections are described in some detail : the American Architecture Image Bank (under the auspices of the Society of Architectural Historians), and the World Architecture Image Bank, while a third, the Philadelphia Architecture Image Bank, is introduced. ;
