Princeton University joins Google's library project

Share this on social media:

Princeton University, USA, has joined the Google Library Project. The combined collections of the Princeton University libraries total more than six million printed works, five million manuscripts and two million non-print items. Google and Princeton will digitise approximately one million public-domain books from these collections, so that readers around the world will be able to view, browse, read, and even download public domain materials from online searches.

‘Joining the Google partnership allows us to share our collection with researchers worldwide,’ commented university librarian Karin Trainer.

Princeton University is the 12th library to join the Google Library Project, which digitises books from major libraries around the world and makes their collections searchable on Google Book Search.
