"This is a carefully planned, well-organised record of cultural heritage storage, preservation and access, and it deserves to be widely read."
- Australian Library Journal
"Much wider-ranging than even its generic title suggests...with interesting, useful, and highly specific individually authored articles that stand strongly on their own merits..This first "annual" bodes well for the series, and collections librarians of every stripe should at the least least rummage its table of contents."
"Keeping, managing, and sustaining the objects of cultures both living and dead are topics for the brave imaginations on display in this debut volume of a new series. These scholars are dedicated to practice, reasoning, behaviour, professionalism, and technique in the essential realm of cultural heritage preservation. They are, more than most of the world’s scholars, devoted to tracing the treasured continuities of how we live and keep our lives. The reports in this first volume will inform and inspire all parts of our field."
- David Carr, professor emeritus at the University of North Carolina
