Amazon’s Search Inside the Book

This is sort of a con-grunt from Internet Librarian 2003, but not specific to any one program. I heard repeated reference from presenters and keynoters to the significance of Amazon’s new “Search Inside the Book” feature, confirming my own gut reaction that this is big, really big, in ways we don’t yet understand or appreciate.

I’m going to be writing about “Search Inside the Book” for LJ; I owe them a small bucket of words by November 24. If you have thoughts about this capability–it’s the best thing since beer in cans, it’s the final death knell of librarianship, it’s irrelevant, your mother really likes it–either comment below I’ll follow up with questions to you), or reach me at kgs [at] bluehighways dot com.
