Selecting Collections

There are two primary issues to consider in selecting collections to digitize:
  1. Collection Value (Written by Grace Agnew, Rutgers University Libraries):
    Would the collection provide more value, to the organization and to its users, if it were available in digital form?

  2. Copyright: does the organization have the right to digitize and disseminate the resources in the collection?
