The goal of this paper was to provide basic information about digital collections in public libraries in Croatia. Since we live in the modern age, most public libraries recognized the importance of the information age and decided to go with the times. They have started to digitalize materials to popularize the content they have in collections, protect the originals from over-consumption, increase availability of collections and to get closer to customers providing an insight into their history and importance of the region in which they live. The paper consists of four parts. The first part defines public libraries and their role in society. The second part defines digital libraries, their role in modern times and the challenges that accompany their work. The third part gives the reasons, the advantages and disadvantages of digitalization, methods and criteria for the protection of digital material, describes the equipment to digitalize, general digitalization process and the ongoing digitalization of different types of materials. The fourth part provides a view and comparison of the digital library collections in public libraries in Croatia.
