In reading about Google’s current effort to digitize LIFE Magazine’s 10,000,000 photographs, I’ve wondered if we really need so many online resources like this. Ten million photographs from LIFE’s archive? How about five million? How about one million?
I’ve recently seen several CONTENTdm institutional users featuring newspapers and journals numbering anywhere from 30,000 images/pages to 90,000 images/pages. Goodness.
