UW-Madison: New Google deal boosts access to books

The University of Wisconsin-Madison says a new agreement with Google will expand public access to its library collection.

MADISON, Wis. —

The University of Wisconsin-Madison says a new agreement with Google will expand public access to its library collection.

The university says readers across the country will be able to preview its books for free and buy access to the full texts online.

In addition, universities, colleges and public libraries will be able to offer access to their students through subscriptions.

Every public and university library will also receive one license to provide free online viewing of millions of books at designated computers.

The new agreement revises a deal struck between UW-Madison and Google in 2006. So far, more than 200,000 works have been digitized.
