This book highlights the challenges that arise when book materials are transmediated into digital forms, both from the point of view of those who look after the physical objects and strive to preserve them for future generations, and those involved in the digitization of the objects, the information that they contain, and the management of the digital data. By surveying a variety of projects and approaches to the difficult conservation-digitization balance, and in fostering a dialogue amongst practitioners that can be thought of as having contrasting goals, this book is a tool for a variety of research, policy making, and practical purposes, and demonstrates that a dialogue between apparently contrasting fields not only is possible, but it is in fact desirable and fruitful.
