Google and British Library Join Forces - Books Fear For Their Own Survival

Google Works With British Library to Digitize Out-of-Copyright Books

The British Library has announced plans to work with Google in digitizing 250,000 books from the library's collections. The project will involve out-of-copyright books and is expected to be completed in three years. Books that are not easily found online or in digital format will be given the priority and Google will be bearing the cost of this project.

The books will be free for all to view (for non-commercial uses of course) and these books, texts , pamphlets and periodicals from around 1700 to 1870, covering important times in human history such as the Industrial Revolution and French Revolution. Looks like this project will benefit those interested in history.
