Some discussion about drawing from the APH library. Jane Thompson is the contact. Images are PDFs.
Steven commented that his group ws learning that a diagram needed to be described/viewed in the context of a book.
There was more discussion about how to have an online resource.
There was more discussion about whether to have a physical book available.
The group consensus is that we want to end up with an ebook. The process may start out as a web page.
The web content should be HTML5 supported before becoming an epub3.
Susie will manage the project.
Steven Landeau will send a link for posting to the wiki. He will send a test case image to the group.
The image is of the heart and lungs.
After we have had a chance to look at the image, we should all comment via email out thoughts.
The image is from Mcgraw Hill. a check will be made to make sure we will not run into copyright problems.
