Özet

Özet

Disasters come in all shapes and sizes. Bad things can happen to good digital resources--from floods and fires to hackers and computer crashes. Both library staff and customers are dependent on costly hardware, software, and electronic collections. Electronic information may be more susceptible to problems than print. Storage issues and long-term accessibility for digital materials requiring dated or obsolete hardware often can be overlooked. Without a plan for containment and recovery, a collection or library may have to close, either temporarily or permanently.

Preservation and disaster expert Kahn brings clear guidance and practical expertise to address libraries' worst-case scenarios before they happen. Providing both short- and long-term planning and preservation tips, Kahn provides critical pre-emptive advice to help you

Protect and preserve the right information Adapt 29 proven, all-encompassing checklists and forms that address the issues Learn from real-life experiences shared in four case studies Keep up to date with cutting edge solutions using the comprehensive bibliography

This is the authoritative e-preservation resource for reference librarians, preservationists, archivists, and records managers who create and maintain electronic resources. Library directors and managers responsible for creating disaster plans as well as those in computer services and information technology departments will benefit from this comprehensive guide.
