Scholarship and Libraries in Transition:
A Dialogue about the Impacts of Mass Digitization Projects
Symposium Presented by University of Michigan University Library and National Commission on Libraries and Information Science
March 10 and March 11, 2006
What are the transformative issues and implications that emerge from mass digitization initiatives? How will initiatives such as the Google partnership with academic libraries impact libraries, universities, government, information policy, publishing, and education? What are the professional, social, and economic issues? How will we identify and respond to the challenges and opportunities to shape future directions?
To help explore these questions, the University of Michigan University Library and the National Commission on Libraries and Information Science welcome your participation.
University Library staff members have set up a conference blog, taking advantage of the the Library's new mBlog service for the campus. These staff members offered observations throughout the conference, and we invite attendees to share their thoughts and reactions to the proceedings.

Symposium is funded in part by the John K. Goodrich Discretionary Library Fund.
