Internet Archive to Digitize Library Collections

Google isn't the only one beginning to digitize library collections. The Internet Archive has joined the crusade with their Million Book Project in hopes of digitizing a million books by 2005. It appears that only non-copyrighted works will be included and that full-text can be viewed at no charge.

According to an Information World Review article, the libraries involved are Carnegie Mellon University library, the Library of Congress, the Canadian universities of Toronto, Ottawa and McMaster, China's Zhejiang University, the Indian Institute of Science, the European Archives and Bibliotheca Alexandrina in Egypt.
