"Collaboratively compiled and co-edited by Ian Ruthven (Professor of Information Seeking and Retrieval, Department of Computer and Information Sciences, University of Strathclyde) and G. G.

Cultural Heritage Information is a critically important and seminal contribution to academic library reference collections and supplemental studies reading lists with respect to digital libraries, digital humanities and digital culture." -- Midwest Book Review This edited volume is penned by a range of contributors from diverse backgrounds. This is a bonus as it means that the issues covered include not only information seeking behaviour, but also concerns about access to materials, interface design, copyright issues and a broad overview of many topics associated with heritage materials. -- Journal of Pedagogic Development Provides a number of viewpoints to inform and challenge readers on the primary issues of digital humanities. Academic libraries serving library and information science programs and libraries engaged in digital humanities projects would be advised to consider this book. -- Catholic Library World As this is the first book in the new series started by the Facet Publishing it is proper to congratulate the editors, authors and the publisher with a good start. -- Information Research Cultural Heritage Information: Access and Management is for students, researchers, and practitioners who want to understand digital heritage's unique challenges and learn how they have been handled in institutional projects. --Margot Note World Monuments Fund
