Creating the Digital Library (2012 Edition)

Primary Research
  • This report looks closely at the efforts of universities, libraries, library consortia and consultants to digitize books, periodicals, films and other library materials.  The study profiles the efforts of the University of Kentucky, the University of North Carolina, the University of Chicago, Luna Imaging, Inc., Orbis Cascade, the University of Michigan, Northern Micrographics, the California Digital Library, and the University of Pittsburg. The report helps its readers to answer questions relating to the nuts and bolts of digitization projects such as when to outsource and when to handle production in-house, which type of equipment is most effective, and what quality level should be aimed for?  The study gives detailed descriptions of many current and past projects, along with suggestions and commentary by some of the most distinguished digitizers in academia and beyond in North America today.  The report is organized as a series of journalistic profiles of these major players, as they answer questions relating to marketing, content selection, funding, partnerships, labor training, rights and permissions and many other issues.
