Duke University Libraries introduce a new service: Digitize this book!
The web site says:
Starting this semester, Duke University faculty, students, and staff can request to have certain public domain books scanned on demand. If a book is published before 1923 and located in the Perkins, Bostock, Lilly, or Music Library or in the Library Service Center (LSC), a green “Digitize This Book” button will appear in its online catalog record.
The turn-around time will be less than two weeks.
This is a pilot project. Pending the results of it, they may expand in order to digitize other materials on-demand.
This is a cool service! Are there any other libraries doing this?
