The report explores the tactics, strategies, costs and development plans of these major players in library digitization efforts.  Among the issues covered are: outsourcings vs. in-house digitization, rights, marketing, budgeting, impact on the print collection, equipment preferences, labor supply, partnerships and work flow.  The purpose of the report is to help library digitizers answer fundamental questions related to the practical nuts and bolts of digitization decision making.
