Visual Resources: An International Journal of Documentation is devoted to the study of images and their use. Those images which depict architecture and works of art are of primary concern. The process by which these images are made, organized and ultimately utilized is investigated. This journal explores how visual language is structured and visual meaning communicated and also illustrates how picture collections are acquired, organized, indexed, and preserved. Its scope delves into the past and looks toward the future. Included herein is an analysis of how reproductive images have influenced the perception of art, and how the interpretation of images has affected academic disciplines, including anthropology, archaeology, history, and particularly art and architectural history. Visual Resources examines early attempts to document the visual, reports on the state of visual resources, assesses the effect of electronic technology on the future use of visual materials, and provides a platform for the reporting of new ways to organize and access visual information. It hopes to incite further experimentation and speculation about the potential uses of visual materials, and to increase the appreciation of visual documentation.
