This unique book considers digital collections with the user in mind. The author brings together experts to consider how users interact with digital collections and what these interactions have to say about the value of such collections for a wide variety of cultural institutions. This cutting-edge book looks at the relevance of how digital collections, what role they play in the digital economy, and how information professionals can sustain them now and into the future.
"This book is important for all those involved in digitization programs. Its main strength is that it covers libraries, archives and museums to give an overall perspective."
"Both beginning storytellers and seasoned librarians can benefit from these fresh ideas."
--School Library Journal
"Would be useful to anyone involved in planning or creating policy for evaluation of digital collections and for those who must communicate with stakeholders and funders outside the archives ... This book provides the theoretical groundwork for improving methods for measuring impact beyond quantitative counting of users."
