In an attempt to provide information from a source that’s not in some way related to Google, a group of academic libraries who have been participating in the Google pooling of resources has created a back-up.
The libraries seek to “create a stable backup of the digital books should Google go bankrupt or lose interest in the book-searching business.”
Just a heads-up: the AALL Research & Publications Committee is accepting research grant applications for the AALL/Wolters Kluwer Law & Business Grants Program ($5,000) until Monday, November 3.
So if you have a research question you’d like to be paid to answer, throw your hat in the ring.
Guidelines and technical information
This week’s edition of The Law Librarian, Internet Radio Talk Show (and how much do you love that this exists) talks about what academic law libraries are doing to start the school year off on a good foot.
