Abstract

In today's world of electronic information, librarians have directed their attention and efforts towards digitization. Digitization has been widely used as a method for conserving libraries' collection, in particular the special collections of rare books, manuscripts and archivals. Conversion to a digital format gives the users a new range of search tools, since what is created is a file that can be manipulated as any other electric data file.
