About this book

Memory Institutions such as libraries, archives, galleries and museums all share concerns about preserving heritage, both material and documentary cultural artefacts in collections and new digitally-born material. The management of a wide range of traditional and new media formats creates a challenging environment for institutions.

This new state-of-the-art collection offers guidance from a range of international experts on preservation methods for the sustainability of collections. The book deals with a wide range of contemporary issues including: collection management; the relationship between access and preservation; relevance and use; heritage mandate; funding and sustainability; government directives, including wider promotion/public; user-pays and free access; specialist training; and the impact of digitization and resultant status of the artefact. An informed guide to managing preservation for anyone working in the library, archives, museum and heritage sectors.
