Professionals working in the fields of information and library science, along with museology, might frequently find themselves asking: "What are other institutions doing in terms of technology and digitization projects?" They need wonder no longer, as the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) has completed an update to their 2001 survey on the subject. The survey was conducted among five primary groups which included public libraries, academic libraries, archives, and museums. They followed up their data collection phase with telephone discussions with key participants within the primary groups in order to craft this report. As presented here, the report is broken down into a number of sections, including a very helpful area of key findings as well as a methodology section. Some of these findings include the observation that digitization activities have increased for all groups, though many of these groups do not solicit user feedback to determine what their specific digitization needs might be. Overall, this is a tremendously useful document, and one that will be of particular interest to those who set or study policies at these types of organizations.
