About Mass Digitization:
Millions of books from the University of California Libraries are being
scanned through our participation in mass digitization projects with major
partners such as Google and the Internet Archive. To do this economically
and with some speed, mass digitization is based on the efficient
photographing of books, page-by-page, and subjecting those images to optical
character recognition (OCR) software to produce searchable text. Mass
digitization projects expand the ability of University libraries to give
faculty, students and the public access to an astounding wealth of
information and explore exciting new service models and paradigms.
 
About the California Digital Library:
Established in 1997, The California Digital Library, an Oakland-based unit

assembly and creative use of the world's scholarship and knowledge for the

emphasizing the development and management of digital collections,
innovation in scholarly publishing, and the long-term preservation of
