    Aims and Scope

    This book provides a single-volume introduction to the principles, strategies and practices currently applied by librarians and recordkeeping professionals to the critical issue of preservation of digital information. It incorporates practice from both the recordkeeping and the library communities, taking stock of current knowledge about digital preservation and describing recent and current research, to provide a framework for reflecting on the issues that digital preservation raises in professional practice.

    • This is an excellent introduction to the digital preservation field, and main concepts that archivists and librarians need to know. It's a shame that DeGruyter can't keep enough copies available at their U.S. distributor, though. It makes it difficult to use as a textbook for a course, given that it is never in stock and always needs to be backordered. Perhaps encourage purchase of the e-book instead, because you'll be lucky to ever lay your hands on a physical copy!
