Welcoming Princeton University to the Library Project

Monday, February 05, 2007 at 9:10 AM

Today, I'm excited to announce that we have a new partner in the Google Book Search Library Project: Princeton University. Over the next several years we will work with Princeton to identify approximately one million public domain works to digitize from their library system, which consists of the Harvey S. Firestone Memorial Library and thirteen special libraries located around the campus. Because the books being digitized with Princeton are out of copyright, readers will be able to view their full text online, download them for leisure reading or research, or print them for later reference.

We look forward to working with Princeton to make works from these libraries available not only to the students and researchers of Princeton, but a broad audience of students, researchers and book lovers around the world.
