Optical Mechanics

The Ocularcentric Implications of Digital Collections

  • Megan Allyn Oliver University of South Carolina

Abstract

Whether creating collections for research or teaching with collections in libraries, museums, or information science classes, ocularcentricity has undisputedly become the principal method of interaction with digital collections. What are the accessibility implications of this bias?  We’ll explore these metatheoretical concepts through the lens of our own digital collections practice.
