Library of Congress Will Scan Fragile Books

The Library of Congress will digitize thousands of public-domain works, with a special emphasis on "brittle books" and important titles on American history, through a $2-million grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. By this project, the Library of Congress intends to create a best-practices report that details how fragile items should be handled and scanned.
