A Debate over the Usefulness of Google Book Search

July 30, 2009

I don’t have a whole lot to say about this, but I thought it was interesting to see a number of “New Media” scholars debating the decisions Google made while putting together Google Book Search.  When we talk about the proprietary role that a company like Google has on such an important chunk of our information environment,  it seems important for scholars and librarians to be able to give some direction and feedback.  So far, this does not seem to have been the case.  DM
