BIBLIOTECH: Why Libraries Matter More Than Ever in the Age of Google
by John Palfrey
Palfrey reports on his progress setting up the Digital Public Library of America and argues that in the digital era, public libraries are more necessary than ever before. The author, the founding chairman of the Digital Public Library, is involved with reorganizations of particular libraries, such as Harvard Law School Library. He is known for his expertise in various aspects of Internet policy, including open access and intellectual property rights... Libraries, which lack sufficient financial resources, can't keep up with the flood of printed and digital material… Palfrey provides insight into local efforts in schools and libraries around the country and highlights the individual trailblazers.
