Investigate ways of improving and standardizing services; explore options that could lead to increased efficiency and elevated service, which may include some degree of centralization; and identify distinctions among the types of digitization/reformatting for the purpose of specifying the degree to which each is suitable for any proposed standardization or centralization.
The following should be considered:
a. general and special collections
b. print, audio-visual materials, and three-dimensional objects
c. access, preservation, special digitization, and multi-spectral imaging
d. analog-to-digital and digital-to-digital reformatting versus format migration for digital preservation
