We would like to welcome two new members of our staff.
Enter Google, which attempted to tap into this same technology as part of their ambitious Google Books project begun in 2005. When it was first introduced, the company partnered with five large research libraries (Harvard and Stanford among them) in a project which involved scanning their enormous collections in return for a digital copy of each work scanned. That project, still underway, includes all of the work that is non-copyrighted in each library, as well as a small portion of copyrighted work. More libraries have joined the consortium and the total number of unique digital titles promises to top 25 million books before the end of 2014.
Ian O’Hara joined us in November 2013 as serials/electronic resources clerk. He has an MLS degree from Clarion University and a BS degree from The University of Scranton. He worked in our circulation department while attending school./dd>
Kaytlen Powers also joined us in November as library gate attendant.
