People from all walks of life have embraced Google as an indispensable tool for managing their personal lives. This has led to the development of new patterns of intellectual interaction, and scholarly communication. The question remains, however, as to whether Google has approached the degree of ubiquity as a scholarly research tool that it has as a tool for general discovery and organization. This panel will address the role of such initiatives as the Google partnership in supporting scholarly communication, including its potential for becoming the primary discovery tool for past and present research.
