Cornell University Library announces partnership with Microsoft

From the press release, October 17, 2006:

ITHACA, N.Y. — Cornell University Library will soon be able to offer more of its exceptional resources to scholars worldwide, thanks to a long-term partnership with Microsoft to digitize a significant number of its books and to put the volumes online using Live Book Search service.

The initiative will focus on works already in the public domain and allow students, researchers, and scholars to use Live Book Search to locate and read books from Cornell University Library‘s outstanding collections regardless of where they reside in the world. It supports both the library’s long-standing commitment to make its collections broadly available and Cornell President David Skorton’s goal to increase the impact of the university beyond campus boundaries.

Cornell and Microsoft will be teaming with Kirtas Technologies in Victor, N.Y. to digitize the materials for Live Book Search. Kirtas is a recognized pioneer of revolutionary solutions that enable high-quality, non-destructive bound document digitization at up to 2,400 pages per hour.
