digital collections, internet archive, library, scribe scanning
Since June 2009, BYU’s Harold B. Lee Library (HBLL) has worked in partnership with the Internet Archive (IA) to scan library holdings for public access in the Internet Archive’s digital library (www.archive.org). While many libraries send microfilm, monographs and serials to IA Scanning Centers for digital imaging on Scribe scanning stations, HBLL is one of very few academic libraries working with the Internet Archive in a “no-cash model” partnership. This partnership is based on an exchange of goods and services.
The Internet Archive provides: Scribe scanning stations (one in June 2009; two additional in January 2011), relevant software, post-scan processing.
The Harold B. Lee Library provides: Monographs and serials to be scanned, student employees and a project manager to operate the Scribes for a minimum of 40 hours per week.
