Yahoo’s Up Next For Digitizing

The BBC is reporting that Yahoo will attempt to pick up where Google left off in digitizing 18,000 coyrighted works of American literature plus material from national and European archives. "The end result will be a huge online collection freely available to web users. The first works to be digitized should be online by the end of the year and all 18,000 works should be available through the net by the close of 2006." (Yahoo backs digital library plan)
