"Hurtling Toward the Finish Line: Should the Google Books Settlement be Approved?" Ivy Anderson of the California Digital Library has a very thoughtful article that is worth reading about the pros and cons of the Google Book Project.
In April, during National Library Week, we will have the opportunity to hear Jack Bernard, Assistant General Counsel at the University of Michigan, and Mac alum from the Class of '88, talk about his work on the Google Book Project. He will be joined by Wendy Pradt Lougee, University Librarian and McKnight Presidential Professor at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. We will post additional information about this event, but you can mark your calendars now for Friday, April 16th, 12 noon in the John B. Davis Lecture Hall.
