Minimum Digitization Capture Recommendations
Source: Association for Library Collections & Technical Services, a division of ALA
This document was created as a guideline for libraries digitizing content with the objective of producing a sustainable product that will not need to be re-digitized. Institutions can feel secure that if an item has been digitized at or above these specifications, they can depend on it to continue to be viable in the future. In some cases, institutions may want to request a digital copy to preserve themselves, further safeguarding materials by preserving them in multiple locations.
