Canadian Research Libraries Hit Digitization Path

A major effort to digitize millions of books and other documents at libraries is beginning across Canada. Canadian research libraries have formed a digitization alliance called Alouette Canada to get their books online.

The process involves scanning the millions of books available in Canadian libraries so they can be read by internet users. Parts of the virtual library should be available beginning next year — and it’ll be free to use. Canadian Libraries Join Race to Digitize Books. Dec. 29, 2005.
