The Googlization of Libraries
Today there will be an interesting talk given at the Penn State Library that both Mike Halm and I will be attending … The Googlization of libraries: What do public services look like after all of our books have been digitized? See if you can join us! I’d love to say that it would be podcasted, but I doubt it.
Laurie and Mike will lead a discussion of how the Penn State Libraries should prepare for the service changes that will be needed, and maybe are already needed in an environment where more and more of our collections have been digitized. Will our services be the “value-added” element that defines our role in the open information environment? How will we adjust our models for access and delivery of content? What will the library “brand” be?
