AbstractThe introduction reviews the history of the development of the volume and outlines the fundamental tenets of the work, that managing our data (born digital and made digital) is central to the morals and ethics of practicing anthropology. Furthermore, we emphasize that in order to best do this, social scientists should consult with professional librarians and Information Scientists who are trained in dealing with digital data; they can teach us how to develop management plans and approaches for successfully achieving what we need to do for our particular research endeavor. The chapter briefly summarizes the chapters that make up the volume.
