See DLXS, Getting Started for installation of DLXS, including sample data.
Image Class offers two options for metadata indexing and searching.
Option 1, MySQL, is the preferred choice because MySQL is free, and
because loading data is straight forward.
Option 2, XPAT, was previously the only choice. There is a license fee associated with XPat, and preparing the data as SGML is complex.
It is recomended that existing image collections be migrated from XPAT to MySQL. New collections should use MySQL from the start.

Perhaps the best way to familiarize yourself with collection
deployment in Image Class is to step through the tutorial-like documentation that is used
in the workshop.
Start here and follow the links to the Image Class section of the most recently taught workshop.

A Common Problem
In the past, documentation specific to Image Services at the University of Michigan was included here as well. It is now available elsewhere.
