"This book is important for all those involved in digitization programmes. Its main strength is that it covers libraries, archives and museums to give an overall perspective."
- Journal of Librarianship and Information Science

"Evaluating value and impact is the Holy Grail for all involved in the provision of information.  How do we know that we are making a difference?  This book attempts to answer the question in a series of indpendently written but structured chapters covering the range of issues across the libraries, museums and archives sectors.  The chapters form in effect a series of examples of how different institutions and sectors have approached digitisation, attempted to evaluate them and seek to enhance their value."
- Managing Information

This book brings together a group of international experts to consider the following key issues:

  • What is the role of digital resources in the research life cycle?
  • Do the arts and humanities face a ‘data deluge’?
  • How are digital collections to be sustained over the long term?
  • How is use and impact to be assessed?
  • What is the role of digital collections in the ‘digital economy’?
  • How is public engagement with digital cultural heritage materials to be assessed and supported?

Readership: Academics, librarians, archivists and the staff of cultural heritage organizations, funders and other key stakeholders with an interest in the development and long term sustainability of digital collections.

2011; 224pp; paperback; 978-1-85604-720-3; £49.95

Also available as an eBook (ISBN: 978-1-85604-908-5)
