Big digitisation: where next?
Paper delivered at the Digital Resources for the Humanities and Arts conference in Belfast on 8 September 2009 by Andrew Green, National Library of Wales.
Andrew’s theme is ” what I have termed ‘big digitisation’: the attempt to translate large quantities of analogue knowledge into digital form. I shall concentrate on knowledge originally in print form and I want to consider three questions: why this mass approach has emerged, what it has achieved and might achieve, and how different models for big digitisation compare.” He includes an assessment of Google Books and its impact on libraries worldwide.
