The Battle of Building Library's Digital Collection

PS. Need feedback to improve this webliography relating to recent developments in this field:

  • Students, It’s 2010! So Let’s Go Back to Stone Age!
  • Google – Goodfather and/or Gravedigger?
  • Library ruling limits the rights of the TU Darmstadt
  • The right of prints out of digitalised medias
    The 6th civil chamber at the regional court in Frankfurt decides in a summary proceeding that libraries have the right to digitalise and provide prints from their stock, no matter wether the publisher have own offers.
    The publisher Eugen Ulmer filed a suit against the ULB, which offers at some selected workstations the "digital textbook collection" with 130 current textbooks.

    The court confirmed the right to make prints of these files. Nevertheless digital copies are forbidden. The library was obligated to adopt precautionary measures which prevents such copies. Because of this the ULB modified their service and blocked the download on USB-stick. All other usage is as usual (please see : )

    The court decision can be found in the law reports of the Regional Court Frankfurt with the reference number 2-06 O 172/09.

    Library Research Service's 60-Second Survey: Future of the Book

    Recently, news outlets and blogs have been busy deriding and celebrating the recent ascension of e-readers. The growing popularity of this new format has come with murmurs about the death of paper books and some even surmise that as technology advances libraries will cease to exist!

    Taking notice of the chatter, the Library Research Service has decided to survey librarians on the matter. This new 60-Second Survey asks your opinions on e-readers and how you think they will transform reading. Will e-readers be the demise of the paper book? What will libraries circulate? What is the future of the book? You tell us!
