Google Books on Charlie Rose March 8, 2010Posted by Andre Vellino in CISTI, Digital library, General, Open Access, Search.
I found this conversation about the “Google Books” library very interesting. It is was between Robert Darnton (professor of American cultural history at Harvard and Director of the Harvard University Library), David Drummond (Chief Legal Officer at Google), bestselling author James Gleick and Charlie Rose (from PBS) last night.
I was especially pleased to see Prof. Darnton insist on the need to guarantee “the public interest”. Only he seemed to have the long view, though.
