Re: [Sigia-l] Stanford-Google project
What Stanford has that no other ARL libraries have is a very high-speed
scanner about half the size of a SUV. They can process their public domain
books faster than any of the rest of us can.
When the OCLC digital masters catalog gets up and running, it will be
interesting to see just how much overlap (or not) we all have in our
digitized book collections.
Separately, Sanford gave up its ARL membership this past December. They
just issued a statement.
