EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT
U-M Library features Google digitization discussion

DATE: 4-5 p.m., Thursday, March 31, followed by a reception 5-6 p.m.

EVENT: A public lecture by John Wilkin, associate university librarian. "The U-M- Google Digitization Deal: What it is. How we got there. And what it will mean for the University of Michigan."

In December 2004, Google and U-M announced an initiative to digitize the entire collection of the University Library. More than two years in the making, this landmark agreement represents not only a major change in the way that the library resources are delivered to the library's constituencies, but a manifestation of major changes in digital technologies and culture. Wilkin will discuss the events leading to the announcement, the processes that are used for conversion, and how the library sees this affecting its delivery of services in the coming years.

PLACE: 340 West Hall, 1085 South University. Central Campus map: http://www.umich.edu/news/ccamp.html
