Overview

The Internet is home to a wealth of information, but its lack of permanence makes it a frustrating authoritative resource for both professionals and users. This important guide is the first to offer practical guidance to those who need to collect and preserve specific elements of the Web - from national domains or individual subject areas to an organization's own Web site. Coverage includes the development of Web archiving; selection policies; collection methods; quality assurance; preservation; delivery to users; optimizing Web sites for archiving; managing programs; and more. This is an important resource for librarians, Web designers, policy-makers, and records managers.

A technical book that lives up to its title. This is a clear summary of the technical challenges that web archiving poses, the reasons why it is important, and the ways in which one can approach it, written not for the specialist in digital preservation but for the information manager. But it's a valuable read for the specialist as well and a good summary of the field at the time of writing.If you are involved in any way in web archiving or information management, you should read this book.
