"Written authoritatively by archivists who are also legal scholars, each module provides practical overviews of the laws that govern archival practice, and examples of how legal risks presented by digital reproduction and distribution are successfully managed by archival institutions."

—Archives and Records: The Journal of the Archives and Records Association (2016)
"Overall I found this book to be pragmatic, accessible, and one which advocates appropriately for a risk-based approach. It breathes life into complex issues with case studies and provides useful templates which digital archivists can adapt to their own institutional situations. Thumbs up."
