100% digital libraries are rapidly increasing in number each day. The term hybrid library is often used for libraries that have both physical and digital collections. Digital libraries have no specific vertical market and include Academic, Legal, Medical, Association, Government and any other type of library.
In today's fast-paced environment, library patrons need to quickly access electronic information from many different locations and sources, including their office, home, airport, hotel and many others. Large digitization projects are underway at Google, the Million Book Project, and Internet Archive, among others. In fact, Amazon.com, the world's largest book seller, now sells nearly twice as many eBooks as printed ones.
Digital libraries offer many advantages over traditional libraries, including:
- No physical library boundaries
- No limited library hours of operation
- Multiple access to the same information
- Fast and easy information retrieval
- Historic preservation of older materials
- No physical space limitations
- Improved image quality of older documents
