MS, of course, will use its proprietary, closed format, or, at best, its own version of open format which will remain proprietary and need conversion, as opposed to real Open Document Format developed as part of OpenSource and already ratified by ISO (as, for example, in OpenOffice.org).  Isn't it time for local authorities to embrace OpenSource - Linux, OpenOffice and all the free and open applications software out there?

apologies for any cross-posting

Following the opening keynote this week by Lynne Brindley to the C21st Curation public lecture series, we are pleased to provide further details of the second set of lectures focusing on mass digitisation and libraries by internationally renowned speakers from Google and Microsoft on Wednesday 2nd May.

These free lectures will be open to students, professionals and the general public in the Chadwick lecture theatre at UCL from 6.00 -7.15pm. The lectures will be followed by a reception to which speakers and the audience are invited. For further information and directions see http://www.ucl.ac.uk/slais/21st-century-lectures/ . 

Microsoft's Live Search Books and Library Digitization  - Mike Buschman
Abstract: Book digitization has captured librarians' imaginations since Project Gutenberg began in 1971. The rise of the Internet, especially the ubiquity of Internet search as the de facto starting place for online research, has brought focus to the vast corpus of offline information content stored in libraries around the world. Mike Buschman will describe details of Microsoft's library digitization effort, including scanning, processing, copyright concerns, and future directions. 

Mike Buschman is a Technical Evangelist for Live Search Selection. In this role Mike helps guide product development and maintain relationships with partner publishers and libraries. Prior to joining the Live Search Selection Team, Mike was the Collection Manager for the Microsoft corporate library. In 2005 Mike was named one of Library Journal's "Movers & Shakers." Mike holds a Master of Library Science from the University of Washington.

Google and the publishing industry: a changing landscape - Jens Redmer
Abstract: Google's mission is to organise the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful - a mission that does not include the words "Online" or "internet". As the majority of mankind's information is not yet discoverable online, Google is investing in several initiatives that aim at making more content accessible and discoverable. Without any doubt, the internet and digitisation have fundamentally changed the way users gain access to information and have created fascinating new opportunities for all players in the content industry. Google sees three major factors influencing the changing landscape of the media industries: change in user behaviour; massive change in technology; growth of the internet. In his lecture, Jens will dive into each of these areas and explain Google's view of the development of them. Several projects and ideas in the Google portfolio will be explained to point out how the changing media landscape can be a fantastic opportunity for all players in the content industry.

Jens Redmer is responsible for Google Book Search and News in Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Russia.He oversees both the Book Search Partner Programme, signing up trade, academic and reference publishers who market their books to Google users and the Library Project, as well as Google's News Archive Search project, working with Newspaper and Magazine publishers. Jens holds a degree in computer science and medicine from Kiel University and is a member of the Advisory Board at the Publishing Centre University College of London.
