Report on digital creep (ie.a phenomenon, not a person)

Forthcoming April 2010 from Council on Library and Information Resources (sign up for notification of publication here) See also related article (and lots of comments) in Inside Higher Ed 
A three-report volume will examine key issues in the research library's transition from an analog to a digital environment for knowledge access, preservation, and reconstitution.

The volume will include an introductory essay by CLIR President Charles Henry, followed by three reports:

Can a New Research Library be All-Digital? Lisa Spiro and Geneva Henry

On the Cost of Keeping a Book, Paul Courant and Matthew "Buzzy" Nielsen

Ghostlier Demarcations: Large-Scale Text Digitization Projects and their Utility for Contemporary Humanities Scholarship, report of a CLIR investigation
