Google Books is at the Europeana Open Culture conference at Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam. “Europeana is a digital library initiated by European Commission to bring together digitization projects from around the continent. Europeana works with European libraries, archives, and museums to collect and make easily accessible the books, music, film and art that make up Europe’s cultural heritage.”
“To date, working with library and publisher partners around the world, we’ve scanned over 15 million books from more than 100 countries in over 400 languages as part of the Google Books project we started in 2004. The greater the diversity of content on the web, the more useful it becomes. And the more people who can access the information cataloged in books, the more enlightening those works become,” stated Google.
