With twelve more institutions joining the Google Books project it seems obvious where student will be going for the information.  Begs the question what is then the role of the university?!  Some priorities:

  • Research (so Google books will have content)…
  • Teaching, Teaching, Teaching (not 90% research 10% teaching: some balance – or at least reward for good teachers!)…
