Review:

"Exceptionally well written, organized and presented ... very highly recommended for library staff instructional reference collections, especially as libraries go further and further into the new digital age of information sharing." --Library Bookwatch

"If you haven't started a digitization project yet, read this book first. It will help and inspire you to get your project started by providing planning and management tips as well as real-life successes by libraries large and small." --Online Searcher

"As each of the different steps of a successful digital project are addressed, the authors present practical approaches, suggesting a variety of good options along a spectrum instead of a single 'right' way to proceed. This is especially
helpful considering the wide variety of public library collections, resources,
locations, staff profiles, and all combinations thereof. This volume's biggest strength is the proliferation of real life examples. Nearly every concept, once addressed, is illustrated by at least one extended description of how a specific library and its staff handled the challenge ... Those at public libraries or other small- to mid-sized institutions who want to pursue digital projects in a sensible and successful way could benefit from reading this book as part of their planning process. It could also serve as a guide to those already digitizing their collections, who are looking for ideas for increasing community involvement, improving marketing, or funding further
efforts to share more online." --Technical Services Quarterly
