Digital Preservation Essentials (print)

Edited by Christopher J. Prom & featuring modules by Erin O'Meara & Kate Stratton


Digital Preservation Essentials is part of the series Trends in Archives Practice. It includes two modules by Erin O'Meara and Kate Stratton:

  • Module 12: Preserving Digital Objects
    Explores concepts of digital preservation in the archival context, focusing on standards and metadata required to make digital objects accessible and understandable over time.
  • Module 13: Digital Preservation Storage
    Provides an introduction to digital storage best practices for long-term preservation, including terminology, hardware, and configurations.

As University of Illinois Preservation Librarian Kyle R. Rimkus notes in the introduction, "The successful archivist needs a grounding in the fundamental concepts of digital preservation, a command of its key terminology and practices, and an ability to build effective programs and practices. These modules provide an excellent point of entry."


About TRENDS IN ARCHIVES PRACTICE: This open-ended series by the Society of American Archivists features brief, authoritative treatments written and edited by top-level professionals that fill significant gaps in archival literature. The goal of this modular approach is to build agile, user-centered resources. Modules treat discrete topics relating to the practical management of archives and manuscript collections in the digital age. Select modules are clustered together by topic (as they are here) and are available in print or electronic format. Each module also is available individually in electronic format so that readers can mix and match modules that best satisfy their needs and interests. Stay on trend with TRENDS IN ARCHIVES PRACTICE!
