L'ogre anglophone


From BiblioAcid on the finding in our Aggregate collections article that about 50% of unique titles in the aggregate Google 5 collections were in non-English languages.

Bref, l’�crasement de la francophonie par l’ogre anglophone Google semble largement fantasm�. [BiblioAcid]

Of course, our figures refer to the collections themselves, not to the choices Google and the libraries make about digitization.
