Provides practical tools and resources for conducting and documenting an appraisal of digital records
Module 14: Appraising Digital Records is part of the series Trends in Archives Practice. It can be purchased alone, as it is listed here, or as part of the Appraisal and Acquisition Strategies volume, which also includes Module 15: Collecting Digital Manuscripts and Archivesby Megan Barnard and Gabriela Redwine and Module 16: Accessioning Digital Archives by Erin Faulder.
About TRENDS IN ARCHIVES PRACTICE: This open-ended series of modules 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!
