Google Digitization of Library Collections

From the E-LawLibrary Weblog, December 14, 2004

"Google and five libraries announced Google's plan to
digitize volumes from each of the libraries' collections
to make them searchable through the Google search engine.
Electronic copies of the entire collections, or nearly the entire
collections, from Stanford University and the University of
Michigan will eventually move online, while selected volumes
from Harvard University, Oxford University, and the
New York Public Library will also go online in the future."
