Current technological opportunities and challenges could not have been anticipated in the 1980s and 1990s, but now dominate much professional discourse and constitute an essential component of effective training programs. Several chapters from earlier editions have been reworked thoroughly to reflect the current record keeping climate. Although it should be noted, that the author retains her emphasis on caring for paper-based materials and more traditional formats, thereby recognizing the fact that archivists necessarily manage a diverse mix of materials and that all required good preservation practices. Also to be considered in this new edition is the fact that the informational environment for archivists and conservators has changed. This book provides an important service by synthesizing the wide-ranging literature into a coherent narrative and also offers a handy "list of resources" that archivists will want to consult on a regular basis. In conclusion, the book effectively blends both the conservation and the preservation management traditions that have enriched American archival development.
