Two more interesting articles on Google Print

Once again, the French are not happy with us. "Jean-Noel Jeanneney, who heads France's national library and is a noted historian, says Google's choice of works is likely to favor Anglo-Saxon ideas and the English language."


Barbara Fister's article in Library Issues 2005 is a more nuanced article than I've seen elsewhere. My favorite line from the article: "Technological change tends to be met with utopian optimism or dystopian gloom, and Google’s partnership with libraries is no exception." To true.
