This paper delves into what digitization is, why it's useful, and how library materials may be digitized. As examples, we looked at the "cognitive flexibility," "relational," and "non-verbal immediacy" theories. It also covers the planning and policy implications of common problems faced throughout digitalization. Documents and works of art are digitized when they are transformed into digital pictures. By "digital images," we mean digital reproductions of paper documents. The term "digitization" refers to the process of transforming paper documents into digital files. The primary goals of digitization are to increase accessibility and improve longevity of library holdings. The process of digitizing library items presents a variety of obstacles. Human and technological difficulties are involved, with repercussions for strategy and policymaking. Due to the aforementioned issues and the necessity to become digital, i.e. offer online services, it was determined that digitization is an important role in contemporary libraries.
