The study also looks at the type of images maintained and how these images were acquired, through, for example, in-house scanning, outsourced scanning, digital creation at the outset, or purchased from a commercial vendor or other means. The report describes the type of digitization standards used, the use of crowdsourcing, spending on rights and licensing, methods of image retrieval available to end users, permissions protocols, discovery and access tools, digital preservation policies and more.
