Thousands of librarians will soon converge in New Orleans for the 2006 American Library Association Annual Conference. We'll be there (booth #2440), and we're excited to talk with librarians about how they're using tools like Google Earth, Google Scholar, Google News, and, of course, Google Book Search.
In anticipation of the conference, we've just put out our fourth newsletter for librarians. This one turns the spotlight on Book Search, with an article about the project's history, feedback from the library community and a piece discussing a surprisingly popular use of Book Search -- digging for clues about your family history.
We're also excited to announce the release of two new posters, one of which focuses on Book Search. All three posters we've created are available as free downloads from the Tools page of our Librarian Center. If you're interested in staying abreast of new features, teaching tools and other library-related information, make sure to sign up to receive future issues of the Google Librarian Newsletter.
