Ten More Universities Join the Google Book Project

From CIC’s Press Release:

The national 12-university consortium called the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) announced a collective agreement today to digitize select collections across all its libraries, up to 10 million volumes, as part of the Google Book Search project. The CIC is a consortium of 12 research universities including University of Chicago, University of Illinois, Indiana University, University of Iowa, University of Michigan, Michigan State University, University of Minnesota, Northwestern University, Ohio State University, Pennsylvania State University, Purdue University and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Two of the consortium members – University of Michigan and University of Wisconsin-Madison – were already participating in the project.

At least seven other U.S. libraries, including Harvard, Stanford, and the New York Public Library, and six European libraries are participating in the project. More information about the Google book project is available here.
