Review:

"All major issues and professional tasks related to digital preservation and curation can be found in this publication...I would recommend the book to use not only in practical work but in digital curation teaching as well. It may play a role of an introductory textbook in modern digital preservation in addition to its direct more applied function." --Information Research, December 2010

"A comprehensive and clearly written guide to digital curation, this is indeed a publication that is very much needed, and it clearly delivers on expectations." --The Electronic Library, January 2011

"...this volume is a comprehensive resource of best practices in digital curation, useful for current practitioners, those considering working in digital curation, and those studying in the field...Whether looking for conceptual models or how to define data, how to share knowledge and collaborate on preservation planning and policy, or working with data, this book will assist all." --ARBA Online

"Accompanied by a website, this work will benefit any librarians, archivists, or other professionals whose work involves preservation of and access to digital material." --Library Journal, April 2011
