Google is scanning
California-based Google Inc. said last December it would scan millions of books and periodicals into its popular search engine over the next few years.
Its partners in the project are Harvard University, Stanford University, Oxford University, the University of Michigan and the New York Public Library.
Google says the project will promote knowledge by making it more easily and more widely accessible. It aims to make money by attracting people to its Web site and to its advertisements.
