Written by leading international experts in digital library development, each book in the Digital Futures series examines in detail some of the key strategic and practical issues facing libraries and other cultural institutions in the rapidly expanding world of digital information. The proliferation of developments in digital technology makes choosing the right method of digitizing resources an increasingly complex process for information organizations. This technology is a key way forward in the twenty-first century, but it is important to develop a strategy to assess fully the costs and benefits of going ahead with a digitization project, and to know when it is the right or the wrong time to do so. This book presents information managers with all the strategic and practical issues. It runs through the digitization process step by step, and outlines the different techniques available to deal with a wide range of library resources, and explores the opportunities offered by a collaborative approach to digitization. Fully case and evidence based, the text is supported by examples of digitization projects carried out in various types of libraries from around the world.
