ALA President Michael Gorman Interviewed
"Michael Gorman, who began his term as ALA president last month, said in an interview Tuesday that the concerns include Web giant Google's plans to digitize the nation's libraries, government intrusion into personal library records, and funding shortfalls...While he supports digitizing reference materials such as encyclopedias and dictionaries, Gorman said many books are being "atomized," meaning that online they would be reduced to a collection of paragraphs or sentences that can be taken out of context."
