The goal of Google Scholar is to help researchers everywhere find & learn what their colleagues worldwide have discovered. We have come a long way towards making it easy for scholars to find relevant articles. In this talk, I will describe our experiences in trying to make it easy for researchers to read the articles that they have found. Over the years, we have worked with many partners for this - libraries, library software providers, library consortia, publishers, hosting platforms, aggregators, international organizations. We have had some clear successes and some clear failures. I will describe what worked and what didn't.

NOTE: Overflow seating is available for all plenary sessions in the Francis Marion Colonial and Gold Ballrooms.
