Especially high cost, it is believed the major difficulty of applying. But budget increase is not the only approach to assess the cost; it should be consider from the view of entire cost management. By doing so, one will get different conclusion about the cost problem of digital library and digitalize service.

Although the condition of existence of digital collection and traditional holding at the same time will last for quite a long time, planning the implement of digital library and digitalized service in advance will not only be helpful for deliberating the development policy of holdings and service actively but also increase the value of the library.
