            The Strategic Stewardship of Cultural Resources examines the challenges faced in preserving and safeguarding library resources. Twenty-two leading library and archival professionals address critical issues on the preservation and security of collections in cultural property insti...tutions, including libraries, museums and archives. The book explores the connections between physical security and the preservation of cultural heritage that librarians have the unique opportunity-and obligation-to see passed on from generation to generation. It identifies the risks involved in preserving cultural resources and presents effective strategies for security. It guides readers through the process of evaluating preservation and security programmes, budgeting costs, determining the right amount of facilities security, meeting the challenge of preserving digital information and coping with the negative effects of theft and vandalism.

            The museum today faces complex questions of definition, representation, ethics, aspiration and economic survival. Alongside this we see burgeoning use of an array of new media including increasingly dynamic web portals and content, digital archives, social networks, blogs and onl...ine games. At the heart of this are changes to the idea of 'visitor' and 'audience' and their participation and representation in the new cultural sphere. This insightful book unpacks a number of contradictions that help to frame and articulate digital media work in the museum and questions what constitutes authentic participation. Based on original empirical research and a range of case studies the author explores questions about the museum as media from a number of different disciplines and shows that across museums and the study of them, the cultural logic is changing.

            Archiving the British Raj: History of the Archival Policy of the Government of India, with Selected Documents, 1858-1947 (Hardback)

            Generally the archives are sites where historians conduct research into our past. Seldom are the archives objects of research. Archiving the Raj traces the path that led to creation of a central archive in India. In examining the archival policy of the colonial government, it pro...ceeds to explore the complex relationship between knowledge and power. While a section of British political authorities favoured accurate archiving of historical events and limited access to records for selected non-official researchers, the overwhelming opinion in official circles was against such access. In the last two decades of colonial rule in India there were anticipations of freedom in many areas of the public sphere, and, in many ways, these were felt in the domain of archiving, chiefly in the form of reversal of earlier policies. From this perspective, the author discusses how the World Wars, the decline of Britain, among other factors, effected a transition from a Euro-centric and disparaging approach to India towards a more liberal and less ethnocentric approach.
