Abstract

This chapter assesses the illusory promise of total information that guides the digital age, noting how the study of specific acts of recovery in their historical and cultural contexts, reveal information as subject to loss and inaccessibility. National barriers, epistemological limits, the opacity of physical bodies, Lee suggests, inspire a more limited, more modest set of claims that digital archives can pursue.
