Smart Libraries Newsletter October 2007
In "Rollin', Rollin: Google Book Search " Tom Peters reports on what some may consider to be an infamous Google activity in the library world.

"Google Book Search (GBS), the growing online resource born in part from a massive book scanning project involving dozens of partner libraries around the world, just keeps rolling along, like Old Man River," writes Peters. "You can love GBS, hate it, or be ambivalent toward it, but it may be the most significant information-related project since the creation of the Internet."
