Google has made its first book canning deal with a national government’s ministry of culture, reports The Bookseller. Through the agreement, Google will scan, and pay for the scanning of, public domain books from libraries in Rome and Florence. The coolest part is that, among the million book Google has agreed to scan, are works by Galileo and Kepler. So, if you read Italian but don’t live in Italy, you’ll soon have some very interesting books to peek at.
