Book Description:

Modern digital technologies and a growing interest in the history of the book as an academic discipline have refocused attention on rare and historic materials. Today's modern digital technologies have enabled new ways to archive and share these documents, but the proper care and preservation of the original is still a challenge.

About the Author:

Steven K. Galbraith, PhD, is curator of the Cary Graphic Arts Collection at Rochester Institute of Technology and former Andrew W. Mellon Curator of Books at the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC.

Geoffrey D. Smith, PhD, is head of the Rare Books and Manuscripts Library at The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH.
