see the comments for discussion of digital scanning of libraries, etc.


I like old books - how can you hope to scan all the aspects of them that others consider valuable with today's technology? Imagine relying on microfilm for newspapers -- the color is gone, the size is gone, and the reproduction is quite often poor -- photographs (and other original images) are VERY poory reproduces in most microfilm. And we want to rely on today's scanning technology for tomorrow's legacy?
