Présentation de l'éditeur
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 may refer to digital curation to mean the same thing, taking digital preservation to be the very limited steps and processes needed to insure access over the long term. The authors take digital preservation in the broadest sense of the term: looking at all aspects of curating and preserving digital content for long term access.
The book is divided into four parts based on the Digital Preservation Triad:
- Situating Digital Preservation,
- Management Aspects,
- Technology Aspects, and
- Content-Related Aspects.
Digital Preservation will answer questions that you might not have even known you had, leading to more successful digital preservation initiatives.
