Barbara Quint discusses the recent Google Print initiative in Information Today. She notes teething troubles with the exposure of OCLC records in Google and wondes about a ‘library tab’ within Google.
One alternative would be to put such records into a sub-domain, adding another tab to the spare Google home page. One called �Library� comes to mind. When I asked Chip Nilges, director of OCLC WorldCat Services� Cooperative Discovery Services, if OCLC had ever discussed such options with Google, he sighed and said, �No, we haven�t discussed that yet, but it�s a conversation we�d be glad to have.� [Google Beta Tests Book Search Service]
