Summary This new edition of Digital Preservation for Libraries, Archives, and Museums is the most current, complete guide to digital preservation available today. For administrators and practitioners alike, the information is presented in a readable fashion, focusing on management issues and best practices. Although the book addresses technology, it is not solely focused on the topic. After all, technology changes and digital preservation is aimed at the long term. This is not a how-to guide that gives step-by-step processes for certain materials in a given kind of system. Instead, it addresses a broad group of resources that could be housed in any number of digital preservation systems. It is not about technology or theory; instead, it is "What I need to know before I get started." DIgital preservation is concerned with the life cycle of the digital object in a robust and all-inclusive way. Many Europeans and some North Americans might refer to digital preservation as digital curation, meaning a limited number of steps and processes to ensure access over the long term. The authors of this book take a broader view - looking at all aspects of curating and preserving digital content for long-term access. -- from back cover.
