  • Description

This guided tour of the digitization process takes the reader from selecting what to digitize right through the actual digitization process, incorporating project funding and management. Lee addresses both the specifics of digitization technology and the decision-making factors facing libraries of every size and type. Chapters include: assessing collections, digitization techniques, metadata, delivery, archiving, preservation, image and text, managing projects, a bibliography and further reading. The wealth of flowcharts, checklists, and matrixes will help librarians and other information professionals make informed decisions and achieve cost and time efficiencies. Anyone exploring the potential of digitization, investigating new ways to support learning on campus or in the community, or seeking new answers to preservation and access questions will appreciate this practical and comprehensive handbook.
