U-M Library puts millionth digitized book online

The U-M Library has just put its millionth digitized book online. The Michigan Digitization Project is a partnership with Google that will digitize the Library’s entire printed collection. It will provide full-text access to works that are in the public domain, creating new ways for users to search and access U-M Library content. As a leader in digital archival and preservation efforts among research libraries, the U-M Library has been digitizing material for many years, but the partnership with Google allows the University to accomplish the task faster and on a scale that would not have been achieved alone. No other library has yet scanned this many books.
