I'm working on a newspaper digitization project, and I've got a question 
regarding the "target" resolution reference images that are often 
included in the NDNP microfilm digitization batches.

For example, in this reel:

Images 0001-0005 are target images that do not include any newspaper 
issue/page content.

For institutions that are storing digitzed newspapers in a digital asset 
management system or repository:

1. Are you storing these target images? Or ignoring them?

2. Does the order of the target images matter?

Any insight that people may be able to offer would be greatly 
appreciated. We're just getting started with our newspapers project, and 
looking for some community consensus around this issue.
