Abstract

The world of digital materials presents archivists with many opportunities to access, present, and engage with materials in more flexible ways. Of course, this also presents challenges, including feeling like we do not know the “right” way to proceed, or knowing that we lack the resources to proceed the way we believe is best. In The Theory and Craft of Digital Preservation, Trevor Owens offers a set of frameworks and concepts related to digital preservation with the expectation that an understanding of a few basic principles will provide an informational foundation, allowing archivists to respond with professional expertise and creativity to the ever-evolving digital landscape.
