• Discusses use of off-the-shelf and shareware technology

• Covers creation of metadata for discovery layer access

• Shows how digitized materials can be made available over the Internet, making them much more accessible than the physical versions

• Presents information to create a path for future projects and for storage of output information

• Shares knowledge that is transferable to media other than those discussed in the book
