The top three people in the country to speak on the issues of:

  • a national digital public library;

  • the legal ramifications of the Google BookSearch Settlement—most especially copyright and the digital objectives of libraries; and

  • the perspective of U.S. publishers

They are respectively,

Robert Darnton, Carl H. Pforzheimer University Professor and Director of the Harvard University Library

Pamela Samuelson, Richard M. Sherman Distinguished Professor of Law and Information Management at the University of California, Berkeley, and

Tom Allen, President and Chief Executive Officer, Association of American Publishers

Yakov Shrayberg, [Шрайберг Яков Леонидович], Director General of the Russian National Public Library for Science and Technology and ILIAC (co-sponsor organization) President, Moscow, Russia, will speak about digital libraries in Russia and their availability to the public.


Questions to be discussed:

Will the creation of a national digital public library be the downfall of library book collections—especially those in the public domain

What are the implications for library book collections and librarians if all of the published books from the greatest libraries are digitized?

Who should control the digital library(ies)?

How far are publishers willing to go to promote access to digital books—obstacles or partners?

What will be the future of academic print book collections if the goal of a national digital public library is achieved?

What is meant by “a national digital public library”?


Come to this conference where all of these questions will be answered, and more!
