TOLEDO, OHIO -- A teenager's diary documenting life in a Soviet labor camp more than seventy years ago is now available for the public to read, thanks to a digital preservation project by the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library.
The diary is among the first documents digitized in the library's new digitization lab. In 2013 the library procured a KABIS III automated book scanner and an i2s SupraScan Quartz A0 flatbed imaging system through Kirtas Inc. using funds granted from the federal government's Library Services and Technology Act program.
