`archiving websites` doesn`t sound interesting, in many ways its not. The whole concept of websites to many is the speed at which they change, the computer fraternity is hell bent on pushing forward, I am one of those sorts. But we all know the frustration of pages we needed disappearing overnight. Oh and I don't much like books, they are generally out of date before they`re published, but this griped me until the end.
Getting back on track, this book provides information on all aspects of web archiving, from; how to select pages to legal and copyright issues to preservation, future trends and so much more.
In under 250 pages of fairly large type and diagrams/grey images this paperback, provides a full and comprehensive guide to all aspects of archiving in the current web model. Anyone who wants to archive any web resource will find this a god send.
Every chapter is fully referenced giving a fantastic array of further reading and website examples to research further making this book joyfully concise and an easy read.
