"we manage data, metadata and digital archives"

And is Fujitsu paid to enter the metadata? Isn't that supposed to be handled by employees already on the payroll? Or are digital archive a whole new thing? Surely if you have to scan millions of pages and it's a whole new business sector, hmm, a few millions bucks don't seem excessive.

From where I come from, maybe libraries don't have such a portfolio, but on the other hand it they did not expand into make-believe work, as bureaucracies are wont to do.
