Is Google about to name another library as a member of the Google Print library digitization project? We haven’t heard anything (but we’re asking). The article: Google plans to enable students to search Purdue libraries in the university newspaper makes it sound like some type of announcement could be coming soon. Of course, it could just be a bit of Googlemania hitting the Purdue campus since the article goes on to say that Google has only requested a list of their collections.
James L. Mullins, dean of libraries, said Google has expressed interest in Purdues strengths regarding engineering and science and has requested a list of Purdue’s collections.
Btw, I’m surprised that the folks at the Googleplex just didn’t search their own database (or a competitors) to find plenty of detailed info about what Purdue holds in their many library collections.(-; Of course, Purdue’s OPAC (online public access catalog) is also available on the web.
Note: If Google has a comment, I’ll post it here.
