British Library Partners with Google

The BBC reports that:

"The British Library has reached a deal with search engine Google about 250,000 texts dating back to the 18th Century. "

Full story here

“It will allow readers to view, search and copy the out-of-copyright works at no charge on both the library and Google books websites.”

I know some law professors (and librarians) who will be very excited about this news!
