AbstractThis article presents a case study of how Oregon State University Libraries ({OSUL)} organized to accomplish digitization activities. Digitization activities are broken down into six major categories: management, copyright, digital imaging, metadata, hardware/software/web design, and selection. The {OSUL} departments responsible for tasks within each of these sets of responsibilities are identified. The {OSUL} experience of incorporating digitization responsibilities within the existing organizational structure is compared with the results of a previously conducted survey of {ARL} libraries.
