Google and Librarians

A few folks are beginning to notice that Google Librarian Central is puff.
Their summer hiatus continues past January…
The newsletter hasn’t arrived since May.
I doubt they actually care about libraries, may view us as competition, and spend a few bucks on booths and giveaways at ALA to keep the serfs under control…
I predict postings will start again in the upswing to Spring conference season.

    Just started using a feed reader and your article and this one from TechCrunch came up within a short space of each other:
    Google, Facebook Battle For Computer Science Grads. Salaries Soar.

    Here are some skills they are valuing!

    I love it when you talk straight like this.
    A dozen libraries as partners and they’ve got most of the books in the world.
    Still, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Google echo Microsoft in saying that libraries are essential to provide access to the internet, at least in the US.
