The complete guide to personal digital archiving.

Burnett, Simon


Simon Burnett


The Complete Guide to Personal Digital Archiving is a valuable addition to the growing range of publications focusing on the management of digital media. In addition to its US emphasis, what sets the work apart from other contributions to this emerging field, is its focus on the personal and familial. Marshall proposes that PDA (Personal Digital Archiving) is, in effect, a natural extension to the work of information professionals, and that the work may be used as a primer for information professionals beginning their own journey into PDA. However, many of the insights that may be gleaned from the text are applicable to anyone with an interest in preserving digital content.
