Review "Thoroughly 'reader friendly' in tone, commentary, organization and presentation." --Library Bookwatch "Purcell's knowledge of digital library programs and experience in the field comes through in the depth of information provided and in the organization of the book. The large practical component makes this book especially valuable for new project managers." --Voice of Youth Advocates "Purcell approaches the digitization of collections as an ongoing effort, and provides a framework for librarians to properly do so … A tremendously helpful resource for those individuals who are digitizing their collection for the first time, or for those who are adding to their current digital collection." --American Reference Books Annual About the Author Aaron D.
