Breaking News

The Library of Congress and the Xerox Corporation have announced that they will be collaborating on a project to develop new ways to store, preserve, and access digital images, according to a press release on October 25th. The two organizations are experimenting with the JPEG 2000 image format, a newer format for representing and compressing images, which they hope will make digital images easier to store, transfer, and display. JPEG 2000 “holds promise in the areas of visual presentation, simplified file management, and decreased storage costs,” they said.
