Title: The impact of digitization on special collections in libraries
Authors: Hirtle, Peter B.
Keywords: Digitization
Special collections
Issue Date: 2002
Publisher: University of Texas Press
Citation: Libraries & Culture: a journal of library history, 37:1 (Winter, 2002): 42-52
Abstract: Digitization has brought significant benefit to the users of special collections. It will also challenge the relative value given to paper originals of rare materials as digital holdings increase. Special collections will need to justify their unique value through a deeper understanding of their holdings and an extension of their scope.
