  • About the Author

This landmark edited collection offers a wide-ranging overview of how rapid technological changes and the push for providing greater access to digitized cultural heritage holdings are changing the landscape of archives. Providing inspirational and informative chapters by international experts, this book will help digital archivists and other information professionals understand the drivers for change in archives and the implications. Sustainable business models for cultural production, the digitization of analog cultural heritage, and the related IPR issues surrounding the re-use of digital objects and data for research, education, advocacy and art all receive full attention. Contributors also present state-of-the-art solutions in building digital archives on networked infrastructure, trusted digital repositories to ensure long-term access, and tools to serve emerging needs in digital humanities.
