google news

It's now official -- the UVA Library is joining the Google book scanning initiative.

Here's the UVA press release: http://www.virginia.edu/uvatoday/newsRelease.php?id=1053

And the identical Google press release: http://www.google.com/press/annc/books_uva.html

We're very excited here. Still feeling a bit overwhelmed as we get ready to think about the scale of the process, but excited nonetheless. It's not yet set when we're starting or what materials we're sending. It's going to make quite a change in our local digitization efforts.
