Building Trustworthy Digital Repositories provides a detailed and comprehensive overview of how to create and support the development of digital repositories and archives. Edited by Philip C. Bantin, an adjunct associate professor and director of the Archives and Records Management Specialization in the Indiana University Department of Information and Library Science, this volume’s process-oriented organization is a testament to Bantin’s expert knowledge gained as a practitioner, teacher, presenter, and author on the topic of electronic records management. In the preface, Bantin states that this book was conceived to help fill a critical gap in the literature demonstrating the connection of the theory of constructing trustworthy digital repositories with examples of how to complete this implementation. He states that the target audiences for this book include a wide range of professionals in the fields of “archives, records management, library and information management, and information technology” (xv) who are looking to begin a trustworthy repository, as well as instructors and students interested in this topic.
