Google Opens Digital Library

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 9:43 am

Google Inc. is asking European book publishers to submit non-English material to its Internet-leading search engine - a move that may ease worries about the company’s digital library relying too heavily on Anglo-American content.

Under an expansion announced Thursday, the Mountain View-based company opened its ambitious Google Print book-scanning project to publishers in France, Italy, Germany, Netherlands and Spain.

It marks the first time that Google has sought submissions from non-English publishers since it began to scan books into its search engine index last year.
