I do not think this is needed. The possibility is known to the community.
Or is German Wikisource fully busy with
proofreading books that have already been scanned
or by individuals.
I personally have a network to get some library scans for free and the
University Library Düsseldorf is offering since years the possibility
for registered users to suggest pre-1900 books for their digital
collections (for FREE). You can contact me if you find something
interesting in the pre-1900 Public Domain in the Düsseldorf OPAC:
I have published this fine option to enrich the digital Public Domain
several times in my blog http://archiv.twoday.net
and have also
reported on the also FREE Grenoble service:
Only for Danish books FREE is the Kopenhagen service I mentioned at
Wikimedia Deutschland e.V. supports the German Wikisource community
with funding to let books digitize by libraries.
The same question goes to Tomasz (on the
cultural-partners mailing list) for the Polish case.
Maybe it is obvious for you, that these options exist
in your countries. But I think good documentation and
the international network of the Wikimedia community
can provide inspiration for other countries.

No, I think they are all different models. There seems
to be no coordination in Sweden.
