Google Books Project on CBC Ideas Tonight

The CBC Radio program Ideas will be looking tonight at search giant Google's project to digitize as many books as possible and make them available to a worldwide audience over the Internet. Tonight's episode is called The Great Library 2.0 CD :

"There’s been nothing like it since ancient times. As producer Sean Prpick explains, Google’s computers will soon hold the largest collection of books in history. What will this mean for our culture and the way we get our information?"
Ideas, a program about contemporary ideas, is broadcast every day between 9 and 10 PM in all North American time zones, Monday to Friday, on hundreds of stations in Canada and the US.

It can also be heard live on the Net.

A podcast of tonight's show will be made available on August 24, 2009.
