Wisconsin and Texas Expand Deals With Google

July 10, 2009

The agreements concern Google's project to digitize library collections -- a program controversial in some quarters and praised elsewhere. Under the revised agreements, people nationally will be able to preview collections at the two universities and to buy online access to the books. The deals are similar to the first of the sort Google signed, with the University of Michigan.
