Google Print

The DYOL (Disaffected Youth of Librarianship) seem to be unmoved by this, perhaps because they now accept major tech advances as pro forma "what have you done for me lately" developments, but we librarians of a certain age are intrigued by Google Print, which "lets Web surfers call up brief exerpts from books, critic reviews, bibliographic and author's notes, and in some cases, a picture of the book jacket."

Go ahead and call this boring, ye DYOL who remember not the world of Gaylord charge machines and print indices, but once again, I wish a typical library catalog came even close to this kind of functionality. {thump thump} goes my heart.

(And Seth, thanks so much for pointing out that Google is a large database!)
