Deanna Marcum and Roger Schonfeld of Ithaka S+R have recently published "Along Came Google", the first in-depth study of the move to digitize collections of books at scale, tracing this work through the Google Books program and the creation of HathiTrust. This series of efforts have been of central concern to CNI's work and took on new importance during the pandemic.

Clifford Lynch will engage Deanna and Roger in a discussion of some of the themes and findings developed in their book.
