English abstract

Digital preservation is a vast and complex issue which involves many aspects and areas of expertise. This paper is rather limited in scope and seeks to develop considerations concerning three questions: the first investigates how the problem of archiving and preservation of electronic journals is perceived by academic libraries, while the second concerns the organizational practices implemented in this area; I conclude with a comparison between the traditional approach and the emerging models of work flow for library activities in this area.

Item type: Conference paper
Keywords: Digital preservation, electronic resources management, electronic publications, scholarly communication, work flow
