This article deals with the strategy of the digitisation of modern collections of the National Library of the Czech Republic. The digitisation strategy is divided into six basic categories. One of them is aimed at the protection of library volumes. The article presents all the possibilities of the selection of the volumes in the National Library of the CR for the purpose of protective reformatting. This includes digitising volumes at risk of paper degradation, damaged volumes and bibliophile titles as well as rebinding volumes.
