View All Available Formats & Editions


We are now entering a world of electronic communications where an increasing amount of contemporary information is created and retained only in electronic form. How will such unstable flows of information be preserved for future historians? Will the future have a past? Will the history of our contemporary world be lost to our descendants? This timely book is the first to examine the implications of this revolution for historical research. The contributors to the volume, who are experts in information management and technology, data archiving, library science, and history, examine the issues and consider the solutions.
