Our first spring semester Forum on Digital Technology in Humanities Scholarship will be taking place from 12-1 pm on Monday, February 8th. 

We are excited to hear UC Berkeley Professor Pamela Samuelson talk about Google Book Search and what it will mean for the future of access to scholarly books. 

Joint professor at Berkeley's School of Law and School of Information, as well as director of the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology, Samuelson offers a critical viewpoint about the negative consequences of Google Books for academic researchers and libraries. Her short talk on the subject will open up to audience Q&A, and a general discussion of the issues.

The forum will be in the Geballe Room of the Townsend Center for the Humanities, 220 Stevens Hall.  Please spread the word to anyone who might be interested in taking part of the forum.  Light refreshments provided, BYOBrown bag lunch.
