Google Book Settlement Rejected: What’s Next?
by George H. Pike
Last week's rejection of the proposed settlement of the lawsuit between Google and a group of authors and publishers has thrown the future of the Google Book database into question. A federal court in New York declined to approve the settlement, recognizing that while there was a benefit to society from the widespread digitization of books, the proposal "simply went too far." The court indicated that the settlement was a "forward-looking business arrangement" that would give Google too much power to exploit books at the expense of authors' rights to control their copyrights.

Library Ebook Lending Under Attack
by Paula J. Hane
Libraries are getting the short end of the stick in the ebook market. The options libraries have are poor and our customers are frustrated. There are numerous restrictions on lending, device incompatibilities, proprietary systems, interface issues, privacy issues, and more. How can librarians work with publishers to build a sustainable ebook model that works for libraries? With the world moving increasingly digital, libraries need to find a way to continue to provide services to their constituencies, to ensure equitable access to information, and to work to develop new electronic content access solutions. There's a growing rift between librarians and publishers—at the very time that we should be sitting down at the table together to work on these issues.

INTERNET LIBRARIAN INTERNATIONAL

THE LIBRARY INNOVATION CONFERENCE

 October 17 & 18, London

ILI's Programme Director, Val Skelton, celebrates librarian superpowers. 
Librarians are leaders in tech, organizational influencers, expert marketers (often working with a zero budget), change managers, skilled data crunchers and expert internet searchers--and so much more. ILI's conference programme celebrates the incredible range of roles, skills, and initiatives librarians are carrying out every day. Over two days this October, six conference tracks highlight the importance of the internet librarian's role.

THE NEW LIBRARY, THE NEW LIBRARIAN – exploring some of the strategies, structures, teams, skills, services and collaborations librarians are using to ensure they stay at the cutting edge.

USERS, UX, AND USAGE – understanding how libraries are working with users to redesign services, spaces, and to understand usage.

CONTENT CREATIVITY – investigating how libraries are creating, curating, and marketing digital collections, how librarians are publishers in their own right, and how they are driving collaborative content creation.

FIGHT THE FAKE, FIND THE FACTS – celebrating two of the librarian's super powers--advanced search techniques and nurturing information integrity--in a post-truth/multi-truth era.

MARKETING THE LIBRARY – sharing stories of librarians who are influencing use and expanding audiences for their services and collections from the DJ librarian to the digital storyteller.

NEW SCHOLARLY COMMUNICATIONS – exploring why the scholarly communications landscape is changing, and what this means for libraries and information professionals.

In addition to a series of one-hour workshops - ILI Extra - covering a wide range of specialised skills and topics, from tech topics to personal development, ILI also hosts two one-day pre-conference workshops:

Websearch Academy 2017 explores the intricacies of research on the web. Our global expert speakers look at advanced search, evaluation of search engines, apps relevant to serious research, social media search, and analysis of search results.

Marketing Your Library Service: Principles and Actions--In libraries we spend so much time curating our content and services that sometimes we don’t put enough focus on telling people about what we do. We do so much, but how do we ensure people hear about what we offer and understand what we do?
