Do we use employees to scan all these books or do we use some kind of page turn equipment to scan / photograph the pages. Are all stakeholders willingly to lend us the books we want and how long will it take to digitalize all the books in the world. What are the costs of such an operation and do all the books have to be in good shape in order to duplicate them.


  • Increases availability of books in the world
  • Retrieves books that were thought to be lost
  • More exposure from books that were private property
  • Higher books sales for publishers because books are easier to find


  • Copyrights (who owns the book)

  • How do we digitalize all these books
