English abstract

It is no longer debatable that the Internet has been changing the way that we use to obtain information. Nowadays, it is really hard for researchers to write a paper without relying on electronic resources such as online databases, electronic journal and libraries due to their limited time. Therefore recent years have witnessed massive digitization projects conducted by public libraries. However, this digitalization trend necessitates addressing policy issues related to digitization and the management of electronic content. In addition, though digitization can be attractive at first, it is a costly transition in terms of staff training, equipment costs, user needs and sustainability. In this study, we propose optimization techniques to address various problems encountered during a digitization process and improve efficiency.
