Re: digitization #yizkorbooks


As a librarian in New York City (at CUNY) I suggest that no one overreact,
but that you contact NYPL to learn the details. NYPL has a very active
digitization program and is very reputable. Its librarians are well aware
of the copyright law and I would be astonished if they are not obtaining
necessary permissions. The director of the Research Library is William
Walker. His full title and address are:

William D. Walker
Senior Vice President & Mellon Director of Research Libraries
The New York Public Library
521 West 43rd Street
New York, NY 10018

I will forward some of this e-mail to him to alert him of the concern.

Marsha Ra, Director of Library Services
City University of New York (212-541-0369)
