Abstract

Digitization has become a practical necessity and reality with technology interventions to provide improved access to information sources, preservation and dissemination as required, at anytime; anywhere and any place as it were. Besides, digitization narrows down the "Digital Divide" between the have and have-not within the country, between individuals, developing and developed countries, those who can speak English and those who cannot, digital elite in urban and rural in terms of digital development itself. This paper aims to resolve simple questions relating to library digitization process as well as to find out the exact scenario of library digitization practices in Bangladesh
