Mass digitization requires extensive budgetary, staff and technical resources. Brigham Young University's Harold B. Lee Library has partnered with the Internet Archive to share goods and services in an arrangement that maximizes the assets of each institution. While the Harold B. Lee Library supports a large staff of student employees and extensive library collections, the Internet Archive specializes in large-scale image processing, publishing and hosting. By combining these strengths, the Harold B. Lee Library has scanned ten times as much printed material in the last 18 months as it had scanned in the previous ten years combined.

The efficiency of the Internet Archive digitization process presents challenges in keeping a full scanning queue, but the Library continues to make careful selections by relying on subject specialist expertise and patron interest.
