Science Friday segment on Digital Libraries

A very interesting podcast with with Brewster Kahle of the Internet Archive, Michael Hart of Project Gutenberg, and Michael Keller of Stanford's library (Keller is working with Google on its library scanning project).

The main topics of the podcast includes Google's effort of digitising the world's major University and many suggestions of how Google can make their book search more approachable and more accesible to both individuals and scholars, and also available in bulk.
