This guide is aimed at the non-specialist, assuming only a basic understanding of IT and offering guidance as to how to implement strategies with minimal time and resources. Digital preservation has become a critical issue for institutions of all sizes but until recently has mostly been the preserve of national archives and libraries with the resources, time, and specialist knowledge available to experiment. Each chapter covers essential building blocks of digital preservation strategy and implementation, leading the reader through the process. (WorldCat)
