Along Came Google: A History of Library Digitization
Roger C. Schonfeld, Programme Director, and Deanna Marcum, Senior Advisor, Ithaka S+R
The history of library digitization can provide many important lessons for library leaders today. In this session, Deanna Marcum and Roger Schonfeld, authors of the recently published Along Came Google (Princeton University Press), will have a conversation about some of the key issues. They discuss… – Collaboration among libraries and with third party catalysts and partners, including commercial organizations; – The Google program’s incredible success — from Google’s perspective – and just how transformational it actually was (and was not) for access; and – The enduring importance of strong leadership.
