Although compiling such a work as this is a daunting endeavor for anyone, Luciana Duranti and Patricia Franks have brought together a wealth of knowledge representing diverse perspectives on numerous topics in a remarkably holistic fashion. -- Thomas Hickerson, Vice Provost and University Librarian, University of Calgary; Fellow and former President of the Society of American Archivists; former President of the Canadian Association of Research Libraries The Encyclopedia of Archival Science is both timely and necessary. It provides a panoramic view of archival science theoretically and practically, from history to modern society, from the traditional basics of archives management to digital long term preservation. It will become a frequently-used tool for researchers and opens windows to the public for understanding archival science. -- Huiling Feng, chief editor of The Encyclopedia of China on Archival Science, Renmin University, ChinaVom Verlag:
Here is the first-ever comprehensive guide to archival concepts, principles, and practices. Encyclopedia of Archival Science features 154 entries, which address every aspect of archival professional knowledge. These entries range from traditional ideas (like appraisal and provenance) to today's challenges (digitization and digital preservation). They present the thoughts of leading luminaries like Ernst Posner, Margaret Cross-Norton, and Philip Brooks as well as those of contemporary authors and rising scholars. Historical and ethical components of practice are infused throughout the work. Edited by Luciana Duranti from the University of British Columbia and Patricia C. Franks from San Jose State University, this landmark work was overseen by an editorial board comprised of leading archivists and archival educators from every continent: Adrian Cunningham (Queensland State Archives, Australia), Fiorella Foscarini (University of Toronto and University of Amsterdam), Pat Galloway (University of Texas at Austin), Shadrack Katuu (International Atomic Energy Agency), Giovanni Michetti (University of Rome La Sapienza), Ken Thibodeau (National Archives and Records Administration, US), and Geoffrey Yeo (University College London, UK).
