Organizing for Digitization: A Survey
Boock, Michael; Vondracek, Ruth
portal: Libraries and the Academy, v6 n2 p197-217 Apr 2006
How are academic libraries organizing themselves in order to engage in the content selection and digitization of local collections? Are libraries creating new positions or units, assigning responsibilities to existing departments, setting up cross-functional collaboration among existing departments, or using a combination of these strategies? Who holds responsibility for the various activities related to digitization? The authors surveyed the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) and the Greater Western Library Alliance (GWLA) to answer these questions. (Contains 19 tables and 6 notes.)
