Excellent panel; thanks to all speakers and questioners.

Am hoping there will be more discussion addressing the issues around publishers, and the exorbitant costs universities and other institutions are compelled to pay to gain access to journals in the present climate.

I also wish to thank all of the panelists and commenters. A very stimulating discussion.

I am particularly interested in watching the Stanford projects take shape, particularly the use of ancillary services like reading/reserach alerts and recommendations. The corporate world offers users ways to make shopping easier... why not, in academic libraries, offer ways to make research easier, fuller, more meaningful? Great ideas and insights!

A question that I wanted to ask Josie Parker, the moderator, and anyone else who is not from the Stanfords, Virginias, and Michigans of the world: what does this sort of mass digitization mean to your library and your patrons?
