How can I develop a strategy for digitizing our materials? When is the right time? What technology is appropriate? This invaluable handbook discusses all the strategic and practical issues libraries consider when making the decision to digitize collections. It covers the digitization process step-by-step and outlines the different techniques available to deal with a wide range of library resources, including rare and older materials. Key areas covered include: what to digitize and how; costs and benefits; management; collaboration; digitization of printed documents; imaging approaches; full-text conversion approaches; rare, unique, and older materials; photographic images; sustainable delivery and much more.
