The organizational phase of Project Open Book : a report to the Commission on Preservation and Access by Donald J Waters ( Book )
5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Yale University Library is now organized to move ahead with Project Open Book, the conversion of 10,000 books from microfilm to digital imagery. In the first phase of the Project--the organizational phase--a Steering Committee was established that included several faculty members, and a project team was created. In addition, Yale conducted a formal bid process and selected the Xerox Corporation to serve as its principal partner in the project. Xerox has identified for Yale the required equipment, software, and services to complete the project, as well as their costs, and has proposed a three-phase implementation plan. The implementation will ultimately result in a conversion subsystem, browsing stations distributed on the campus network within the Yale Library, a subsystem for storing 10,000 books in digital form, and network access to high-quality image printers. The process leading to the selection of the vendor helped isolate areas of risk and uncertainty as well as key issues to be addressed during the life of the project. The Yale Library is now prepared to select the material for conversion to digital image form and to seek funding, initially for the first phase, and then for the entire project. This report reviews the purpose and scope of the project, outlines the steps taken in the first (organization) phase, and presents a summary of the results to date. (Author/KRN)

Electronic technologies and preservation by Donald J Waters ( Book )
7 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Digital imaging technology, which is used to take a computer picture of documents at the page level, has significant potential as a tool for preserving deteriorating library materials. Multiple reproductions can be made without loss of quality; the end product is compact; reproductions can be made in paper, microfilm, or CD-ROM; and access over electronic networks is easy. Numerous challenges, however, face users of digital technology. These include: difficulty of browsing on a computer screen; lack of models to assess cost-effectiveness; the relatively short life span of digital storage media and the hardware and software needed to gain access to digital images; and copyright problems. Six approaches will enable librarians to explore the promise of this technology. First the advantages of converting a document to microfilm, which is relatively permanent, or to digital imagery, which is easier to access, need to be carefully considered. Second, as librarians are exploring and evaluating the usefulness of the new technology, they should work with documents that the developing technology can accommodate with few problems and work with materials that are out of copyright. Third, the new technology should not be adopted wholesale but through a series of increments. A fourth approach is to develop and test hypotheses about the value and optimal application of the new technology. A fifth is to build the imaging program around technical standards and products developed for the broad market place. Sixth, libraries should cooperate to make digital image documents widely accessible. Future action needed includes verifying and monitoring the usefulness of digital imagery; sharing methods and standards for image production, storage and distribution; creating and enlarging the base of materials preserved in digital form; and developing reliable and affordable mechanisms to gain access to digital image documents.
