LSJ Editors' Blog: Book digitization in the Times

Book digitization in the Times

From yesterday's New York Times, an article about the digitization of the world's books --Scan This Book! by Kevin Kelly. Lengthy, but well worth the read.

Kelly is clearly in favor of mass digitization, as am I, but there are detractors. ALA president Michael Gorman famously dislikes Google and elaborates on his distaste for their digitization plans in this LA Times op ed piece from 2004. Peter Binkley, in turn, responds with this.
