JISC has released a podcast of two notable librarians talking about what Google digitization can do for research and education.  From the description:

Google has quickly become a key player in the digitization of scholarly resources. In this podcast two librarians – Richard Ovenden of the Bodleian Library at Oxford University and Mike Keller at Stanford University – who are both working with Google to digitize large parts of their collections, talk to Philip Pothen about the opportunities and the challenges of working with the private sector to digitize important scholarly resources.
