Description

This book addresses both practical and theoretical considerations for the creation, maintenance, and preservation of digital archives. While it offers a new approach of thinking about h digital preservation, the authors emphasize that it is not a how-to guide: Corrado and Moulaison take a broader approach, structuring the book according to different activities digital archivists engage in. Throughout the book, Corrado and Moulaison exemplify their arguments by presenting current best practices. The management section is predominantly concerned with institutional regulations, human resources, financial aspects, and organization. In the technology section, the authors present a variety of formats and guidelines, and provide an in-depth discussion of metadata and its importance for digital preservation. Finally, in a section on content, Corrado and Moulaison discuss various kinds of data and content – such as science and humanities data – and what archivists need to take into account when dealing with each type.
