    Hi, digital content aficianados,


    A message from our Friends at the internet Archive:


    The Internet Archive invites you to a virtual book talk with authors and scholars Deanna Marcum and Roger C. Schonfeld about their new book, "Along Came Google: A History of Library Digitization."


    Marcum and Schonfeld will be joined in conversation by Brewster Kahle, the founder and digital librarian of the Internet Archive, as they discuss the history of library digitization projects and what these efforts hold for future scholars. The conversation will be followed by a Q&A with the audience.


    Thursday, December 2 @ 1pm PT / 4pm ET
