Smaller libraries with unique collections are going digital too. At the Conjuring Arts Research Center, a dimly lighted magic library in New York, magician and librarian William Kalush has been working to scan in the entire collection, including 12,000 magic books dating to the 15th century.

"It sounds ridiculous," he said, "but we want to digitize everything in the magic domain."

Nothing new in this article, really, but it does do a decent survey of the situation, geared toward non-librarian readers.
