May IFTF Presentation

Later this month the full Information and the Future Task Force will be meeting to investigate Books in Cyberspace. Specifically this meeting will look at four large Internet based bibliographic databases, Amazon.com, Books.Google.com, Librarything.com, and Worldcat.org.

As we compare and contrasts these databases we will also be asking how the local library catalog fits into this landscape? What can we learn from these four different databases? I think this promises to be a very interesting time. I'm tentatively planning on the meeting being Friday, May 25 but that date may change.
