Books, Camera, Action

Here’s a story I wrote in Boston College Magazine on the BC library’s effort to digitize its library.  The topic is a shape-shifting maze of technological, legal, philosophical, and academic issues – several times while reporting this piece, major and minor announcements fundamentally altered the entire field of book digitization. Regardless of what direction it goes in, this is the future of libraries, and this is a small slice of BC’s move in that direction.
