Another 'Wow!', this time for Google and its 'Google Print' project

Google is planning to scan in digital form books from five of the world's major libraries and make them available over the internet, subject only to various copyright restrictions. A pretty amazing project! The five libraries concerned are: Oxford's Bodleian Library, Harvard, Stanford, the University of Michigan and the New York Public library.
