Oxford’s Google Books project reaches milestone

“The Oxford-Google Digitization project – established in 2004 – has reached an exciting stage in its development with the Bodleian Libraries books digitized by Google now fully available to the academic community and the general public for the first time. Much of the material that the Bodleian collaboratively digitized with Google has only been available in “snippet” or “metadata-only” view to users of Google Books outside the US.  By making the Bodleian copy of the digitized books available online, the material becomes fully available to all users in PDF format. This feature has proved popular since its soft launch in March of this year.  From the initial load of about 335 thousand books, users from all over the world have made already close to 60,000 downloads.”
