Years ago,  I was peripherally involved in an investment in Questia, which put a ton of academicly-oriented books on the net.   While I’m a little vague memory-wise on the details, I think they had something like a bunch of people offshore manually scanning books into their system.

Well that’s all easier, now with the World’s First Automatic Book Scanner.
