Enduring Access to Digitized Books: Organizational and Technical Framework
AbstractThe digitization of millions of books under corporate and non-profit programs is dramatically expanding our ability to search, discover, and retrieve published materials. Accompanying this progress are cultural heritage institutions’ concerns about the long-term management challenges associated with providing enduring access to a hlarge corpus of digitized materials, especially within the confinements of copyright laws. The goal of this presentation is to describe Cornell University Library’s program to illustrate a range of organizational and technical issues involved in planning and implementing a preservation infrastructure for digitized books.
