An additional rationale that can be applied to some borndigital content, such as electronic theses and dissertations, is that by organising it into collections, libraries make it part of larger, co-operative ‘virtual collections’ similar to those I described earlier. Although digitising analog material is usually the most expensive aspect of building a digital collection (creating suitable metadata is sometimes more expensive than digitisation, however), assembling collections of born-digital resources requires substantial effort, and throughout the chapters that follow many of the processes that apply to digitised resources will also apply to those that are acquired by the library already in digital form.

Scores are then tabulated and groups of material ranked. Vogt-O’Connor points out that this method of scoring can be modified to the institution’s mission and overall collection policies. For example, an institution may emphasise value or use and not risk if doing so reflects that institution’s collection policies. She supplies examples of evaluating and ranking collections, nomination forms for selection and deselection, and a checklist for evaluation. Advantages of this highly systematic approach are that it accommodates a wide variety of opinions and perspectives and that it is objective.

Managing permissions Managing permissions to digitise and distribute material is an essential component of developing a digital collection. Every item that a library intends to make available to users must have its copyright status clarified, and if necessary, the rights holder must give permission to use the item. An outline of the steps required to perform this task follows.
