Low-cost digitization projects in eIFL countries

Repke de Vries and Arnold Hirshon, eIFL Case Studies on Low Cost Digitisation Projects, eIFL, undated but recent. 

See esp. the chapter on Results of Digitisation Projects and Access.  Table 8 in that chapter ("Means of User Access to the Digitised Content") shows that in 10 of the 12 surveyed countries, users don't have to pay for access to the resulting digital editions.
