The Internet is home to a wealth of information, but its lack of permanence makes it a frustrating authoritative resource for both professionals and users. This important guide is the first to offer practical guidance to those who need to collect and preserve specific elements of the Web — from national domains or individual subject areas to an organization's own website. Coverage includes the development of Web archiving; selection policies; collection methods; quality assurance; preservation; delivery to users; optimizing websites for archiving; managing programs; and more. This is an important resource for librarians, Web designers, policy-makers, and records managers.
"An utterly invaluable manual for libraries in the modern information age."
--Midwest Book Review
"Extremely rich ... will be an important part of collections around the world that support archival work."
