5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely hits the target!, 21 Nov. 2009
This review is from: Creating Digital Collections: A Practical Guide (Chandos Information Professional Series) (Paperback)
I was expecting to be somewhat disappointed with this book simply because I expected so much from it. The opposite is the case; the books delivers on all the key aspects of designing, creating and delivering a digital collection, especially for someone who has never done this before. It genuinely IS a practical guide, with numerous examples from the authors' experiences with their own collections. Where it is particularly valuable is that it gives the rationale behind their decision-making and choices so that the reader really is getting tried and tested wisdom gained from their practical experience and expertise. It also contains a wealth of essential links to websites containing key information needed for your decision-making. Practical guides can be disappointing because they are neither practical nor credible, or they can be difficult to understand and have holes and gaps in the key areas just where you needed the answers most. This book delivers on all fronts and has no fault that I can find. I am actively using it to create my first online digital collection and this book has given me the confidence to believe that the result will be based on best practice and stand up to academic scrutiny. Fine praise indeed - I highly recommend this book as possibly the only one you will need to create your digital collection (for as long as the technological aspects remain current).

This review is from: Creating Digital Collections: A Practical Guide (Chandos Information Professional Series) (Paperback)
This is a good introduction to digitisation. Although there is not too much detail, the actual content is concise, easy to understand and does refer to more detailed sources on each topic. Overall, a good introduction. Would have liked a little more practical, hands on explanations but still a good read.
