University of Minnesota Sends Books to Google for Scanning


It’s unlikely that you’re waiting around for the play-by-play on Google’s book scanning project, but it’s our job to cover all the digital book news, so here’s one bit of minutia: the University of Minnesota is sending its first shipment of books to Google for scanning this very month, according to the AP.

Here’s an excerpt: “Among the books going to Google are volumes from the university’s noted collections related to forestry, beekeeping, Scandinavian literature and Minnesota’s early history.” Beekeepers, finally there will be a Web-resource for you.

Google will provide the university with scans of all public domain books.
