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

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.
