Brewster Kahle has some insights to this and other things in this speech he gave a while ago:
http://www.itconversations.com/shows/detail400.htm l

He speaks of a bookscanner that are automatic but expensive and humanturned pages which are actually cheaper if pageturner is on minimum wage or from India. Coincidentally the Indian government has agreed to scan any books send to them be the internetarchive (Which Brewster is a founding member of.) Go listen to his speech. It is really fascinating.
