How does the Digital Photographic Library work?
The library hosts optimised high resolution images on the internet. Users are required to register to gain access, citing where these images will be used. Image requests are vetted by the Librarian. Access is granted, giving users access to the library for a limited time period. Users may renew their access to the library. During this time period they may download images and use them according to Sun International's terms and conditions.
Why do users have to register?
This allows the Librarian to keep track of who has accessed Sun International's material and report on the usage of Sun International's images.
What are the types of Users recognised on the Sun International Digital Photographic Library?
Three types of Users are recognised on Sun International's Digital Photographic Library:
- Unregistered User
An image user who can only browse images that are stored on The Digital Photographic Library.
First time users must Register to get the full benefits from this site.
- Active User
An image user who has registered on The Digital Photographic Library, been vetted by the Librarian and still has time left to search and download images from requested groups within The Digital Photographic Library.
To become an active user a simple 2 step process should be followed.
Image Users who require access to The Digital Photographic Library data are required to Register on the Sunimages web site. Once registered the system will automatically send an e-mail to the librarian. End of step One.
The Librarian will confirm and vett the request from the image user to access The Digital Photographic Library. If a positive response is forthcoming then the Librarian will make the image user an active user with a time limit. The system will reply to the active user with the access key to the group or groups that the image user has requested access to. Similarly a negative response will be sent to the image user if the Librarian is not satisfied with the information supplied by the image user at registration. The active image user will then once again logon to The Digital Photographic Library web site and have full access to the images. Follow the instructions to download the images required. End of Step Two.
- Inactive User
Either an image user who has registered but had a negative response from the Librarian or an active user whose time limit has lapsed.
