As a first-time Code4Lib attendee, let me say thanks for a fun conference - a very interesting and creative group of people!
A question I posed to some of you in person, and would love to hear more answers to: What are you doing with Google Books? Do you have a new way of using that resource? Are there things you'd like to do with it that aren't possible yet?
Also, a couple of people asked if Google is hiring. Not only are we hiring large numbers of software engineers, but we're now seeking a librarian / software developer (below). I'm happy to take questions about either.
All the best, Will brockman@google
Google Books is looking for a hybrid librarian/software developer to help us organize all the world's books. This person would work closely with software engineers and librarians on a variety of tasks, ranging from algorithm evaluation to designing and implementing improvements to Google Books.
Candidates should have: * An MLS or MLIS degree, ideally with cataloguing experience * Programming experience in Python, C++, or Java * Project management experience a plus, but not required
This position is full-time and based in Cambridge, MA.
