Free Lecture on Google's Universal Library at Huntington

Lecture: The Use and Abuse of the Universal Library

March 14 (Monday)

7:30 p.m. Free

Google’s project to digitize millions of books and create a “universal library” joins a long history of such visionary schemes. Adrian Johns, professor of history at the University of Chicago, will invoke that history to show the radical implications such an endeavor would have for authorship, reading, and publishing. Friends' Hall. No reservations required.
