Forthcoming New York Review of Books article re Google and the future of books

A friend sent me the following:
I read this today in the 12 February 2009 New York Review of Books in an article by Roger Darnton called "Google and the Future of Books":

"One of my colleagues is a quiet, diminutive lady, who might call up the notion of Marion the Librarian. When she meets people at parties and identifies herself, they sometimes say condescendingly, 'A librarian, how nice. Tell me, what is it like to be a librarian?' She replies, 'Essentially, it is all about money and power.'"

The article is not yet available friend must read the print version.
