Google will digitize millions of books

Five of the world’s largest libraries have joined Google to digitize millions of books and make every sentence searchable.

The project-expected to take years to complete-involves libraries at Harvard and Stanford, the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor and the University of Oxford, as well as the New York Public Library.

The company will begin by scanning works that are in the public domain, and the full contents of those books will be accessible online through the Google search engine.
