Preservation imaging projects

This is in response to Jeanne-Elizabeth Combs request for information on
imaging projects for preservation. In March 1993, the Electronic Imaging
Technologies Committee of the American Library Association's
Reproduction of Library Materials Section conducted an informal survey
to learn about the use of digital materials by scholars and others.  We
received over 30 responses from institutions around the country and
abroad with brief descriptions of electronic imaging projects currently
underway or in the planning stages.  In addition to these responses, we
have added descriptions of nearly 20 other imaging projects to this
list. I would be happy to send a summary of this list to anyone that is

We would like to update our survey with information about additional
projects or new projects under development. If your institution is
currently or has previously been involved in an electronic imaging
project to digitize materials in your collection, or is in the planning
stages for an imaging project, we'd like to hear from you.  To receive a
listing of imaging projects or to send information about imaging
projects, please contact:
