Editorial Reviews

Review

"All major issues and professional tasks related to digital preservation and curation can be found in this publication...I would recommend the book to use not only in practical work but in digital curation teaching as well. It may play a role of an introductory textbook in modern digital preservation in addition to its direct more applied function." --Information Research, December 2010

"A comprehensive and clearly written guide to digital curation, this is indeed a publication that is very much needed, and it clearly delivers on expectations." --The Electronic Library, January 2011

"...this volume is a comprehensive resource of best practices in digital curation, useful for current practitioners, those considering working in digital curation, and those studying in the field...Whether looking for conceptual models or how to define data, how to share knowledge and collaborate on preservation planning and policy, or working with data, this book will assist all." --ARBA Online

"Accompanied by a website, this work will benefit any librarians, archivists, or other professionals whose work involves preservation of and access to digital material." --Library Journal, April 2011

"Harvey shares his wealth of knowledge in a simple-to-read text and provides ample resources for those who want to learn more….Digital Curation: A How-To-Do-It Manual is an extremely useful work that should be read by multiple audiences. It will help archivists and librarians understand digital curation; it can be used by educators to explain digital curation to aspiring archivists and librarians; and it provides a strong framework for archivists and librarians who are responsible for curating digital materials. Harvey's manual provides an important reference resource to archival and library communities and should be manadating reading for professionals tasked with curating digital content." --Archival Issues, 2011

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A lot of this is based on British digital curation practices. It's not the fault of the author that this feels somewhat off for the American context, but this is not the book I'd like it to be. There's still a lot of ground covered here, so I recommend it as an introduction until another text comes along.
