Reviews: 
"The instructor did an excellent job of setting the scope of dealing with electronic records while also providing concrete steps to begin addressing the problem. It is easy to talk about how challenging electronic records preservation is without providing any starting points. This course was able to break the challenge down into identifiable pieces."
"I'm new to archive work; this was very effective as an overview for the beginner." — Karen Olson
"Discussion of archival preservation standards was particularly useful, but all of it was valuable." — Karen Adler Abramson
"The overview from appraisal/inventory to the specifics of preservation media will provide a good reference framework for use in developing an electronics preservation program."
