Today, people get their information online — often filtered through for-profit platforms. If a book isn’t online, some users may miss them entirely. Yet much knowledge still exists only on the printed page, stored in libraries. Libraries haven’t met this digital demand, stymied by costs, e-book restrictions, policy risks, and missing infrastructure. We now have the technology and legal frameworks to transform our library system by 2020. Join Brewster Kahle, Founder & Digital Librarian, Internet Archive and Michelle Wu, Associate Dean for Library Services, Georgetown University Law Library as they discuss this transformation.
