The title for this post will take you to the SSRN abstract page for Claire Germain's article, Legal Infromatoin management in a Global and digital Age: Revolution and tradition. She presents an overview of the public policy issues posed by digitizing libraries, and discusses current developments such as social networking, Web 2.0, and the effects of globalization. She discusses projects, preservations efforts and problems, and the issue of authentication. This last issue is one she pushed AALL to work on while serving as president of the association, and resulted in an excellent report mentioned during earlier posts on OOTJ (link). Important work, Claire!
