Open Conversation with Library Dean Paul Courant

Join us next Tuesday, July 9th from 1 – 2:30 pm in the Hatcher Gallery to hear University Librarian and Dean of Libraries, Paul Courant, discuss academic libraries and the impacts of digitization.paulcourant

During Mr. Courant’s tenure as Dean of Libraries (he was previously University Provost and Executive Vice President of Academic Affairs) he famously oversaw the agreement with Google Books to digitize works in partnership with HathiTrust. He also serves on the Board of Directors for the recently established (and for me, eagerly awaited) Digital Public Library of America.

This will be a fascinating insight into MLibrary as well as broader national (and international) trends toward digitization and federated searching. We hope to see you there!
