Bavarian State Library Joins Google Book Project

The Bayerische Staatsbibliothek (Bavarian State Library) is partnering with the Google Books Library Project. There are now thirteen library partners in the project. From the press release (Tuesday, March 06, 2007):
As one of Europe's most important and renowned international research libraries, Bayerische Staatsbibliothek will add more than a million out-of-copyright books to the program, from well-loved German classics by the Brothers Grimm and Goethe to extensive collections previously only available to those able to consult the library's stacks. In addition to German-language works, the library's collection includes numerous out-of-copyright works in French, Spanish, Latin, Italian and English. Some of the works of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek date back to the very first moments of book printing and bear incredible cultural meaning.
