Google Donates $3M to Help Scan Documents

Google Inc. is giving $3 million to the U.S. Library of Congress to help set up a system for creating digital copies of rare documents from around the world – the latest step in Google’s crusade to expand the amount of information that can be indexed by its Internet-leading search engine.With the donation announced Tuesday, Google becomes the first business to back the “World Digital Library,” a concept that began to take shape about five months ago.
The worldwide program is loosely modeled after the Library of Congress’ American Memory project launched 11 years ago.For more visit here.
