The University awarded a contract for digital and preservation services to OCLC Online Computer Library Center, Inc., Bethlehem, PA, for an estimated $160,000.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the
digital and preservation services provided by OCLC have the unique capacity to produce both preservation quality microfilm (as a very distinct entity from the high-volume world of records filming) and digital imaging services. OCLC adds cataloging and metadata services to their preservation microfilming bureau which insures protection and safety of Library documents.
