Cultural Heritage Information

"Collaboratively compiled and co-edited by Ian Ruthven (Professor of Information Seeking and Retrieval, Department of Computer and Information Sciences, University of Strathclyde) and G. G. Chowdhury (Professor of Information Science, Northumbria University, Newcastle), Cultural Heritage Information is comprised of eleven impressively informed and informative articles by lead researchers in the history and impact of digitally transmitted and preserved information upon our cultural legacies. Cultural Heritage Information is a critically important and seminal contribution to academic library reference collections and supplemental studies reading lists with respect to digital libraries, digital humanities and digital culture."
- Midwest Book Review

Digital Humanities in Practice

"An extensive range of topics is covered: digitisation, image processing, 3-D recording of museum objects, text encoding, historical bibliography and online teaching materials. The use of social media, especially for encouraging public engagement in humanities research, is also discussed. There is an interesting analysis of institutional models for digital humanities (again based primarily on the activities of the UCL Centre), which touches on some broader issues connected with involvement in teaching and research as well as the provision of training and support. Each chapter is supplemented and expanded by the inclusion of a series of short case studies – projects illustrating the specific application of the topic under discussion."
- Australian Library Journal

Preserving Complex Digital Objects

"Ensuring long term access and usability of complex digital objects is of critical importance to the future of nearly every area of arts, culture, the humanities and the sciences. With that noted, to date there is a surprisingly small amount of basic and applied research and scholarship that explicitly engages with issues in this area. To this end, the 25 essays in Preserving Complex Digital Objects are invaluable as documentation and presentation work on this topic."
- Journal of Academic Librarianship

Annual Review of Cultural Heritage Informatics

"Keeping, managing, and sustaining the objects of cultures both living and dead are topics for the brave imaginations on display in this debut volume of a new series. These scholars are dedicated to practice, reasoning, behaviour, professionalism, and technique in the essential realm of cultural heritage preservation. They are, more than most of the world’s scholars, devoted to tracing the treasured continuities of how we live and keep our lives. The reports in this first volume will inform and inspire all parts of our field."
- David Carr, professor emeritus at the University of North Carolina

Linked Data for Libraries, Archives and Museums

"Van Hooland and Verborgh’s handbook on linked data is the first book-length treatment of the subject aimed at museum curators, librarians, archivists and people working in digital humanities. The authors’ ambition is to make linked data and the challenges associated with it more comprehensible to heritage professionals. The tone and organization of the handbook are overtly pedagogical. Its chapters are intended not only to follow a logical progression – looking in turn at modelling, cleaning, reconciling, enriching and publishing metadata, topped and tailed by an introduction and conclusion – but also to be usable individually...In summary, this handbook is a rewarding introduction to the topic of linked data and justifies its place on the professional’s bookshelf. It is probably essential reading for any archivist with, or aiming to develop, a special interest in how metadata can or should be made fit for purpose."
- Archives and Records

Managing and Growing a Cultural Heritage Web Presence

"This is an important addition to the body of digital heritage literature and a strong indication not just of how far we have come in our practice but of how mature today discussion of this subject is."
- Dr Ross Parry, University of Leicester
