Municipal Library of Lyon joins Google Book Search project

Share this on social media:

The Municipal Library of Lyon has become the first library in France to join Google Book Search project. This was the result of a shared vision between Google, head librarian Patrick Bazin, and the Mayor of Lyon, Gérard Collomb. Lyon and Google will digitise almost 500,000 public-domain books and make them available free of charge.

‘As Google Book Search's representative in the French-speaking world, it is particularly satisfying to see a revered local institution such as the Municipal Library of Lyon build a relationship that will last for many years to the benefit of students, researchers and readers around the world,’ said Philippe Colombet, Strategic Partnership Development Manager, Google Book Search, France.
