Article: Library of Congress to digitize brittle books

Quoting the article:
Librarian of Congress James H. Billington said Wednesday the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation awarded a $2 million grant to the world's largest library for a program to digitize thousands of works with a major focus on "brittle books."
The work is to begin in a few months. But here's the cool quote from the article:
The library also plans to develop suitable page-turner display technology and the ability to scan and display book fold-outs.
I can't wait to see what they develop!
