THE BRITISH LIBRARY - The world's knowledge. Home - American Library Association. Million Book Project. The Million Book Project (or the Universal Library), was a book digitization project, led by Carnegie Mellon University School of Computer Science and University Libraries.[1] Working with government and research partners in India (Digital Library of India) and China, the project scanned books in many languages, using OCR to enable full text searching, and providing free-to-read access to the books on the web.

As of 2007[update], they have completed the scanning of 1 million books and have made accessible the entire database from Description[edit] The Million Book Project was a 501(c)3 charity organization with various scanning centers throughout the world.[2] The million book project was a "proof of concept" that has largely been replaced by Google Book Search and the Internet Archive book scanning projects.

Library Success: A Best Practices Wiki

This wiki was created to be a one-stop shop for great ideas and information for all types of librarians. All over the world, librarians are developing successful programs and doing innovative things with technology that no one outside of their library knows about. There are lots of great blogs out there sharing information about the profession, but there is no one place where all of this information is collected and organized. That's what we're trying to do. If you've done something at your library that you consider a success, please write about it in the wiki or provide a link to outside coverage. This wiki is not run by any commercial entity and does not represent any commercial interests.

Anyone who wants to add to or edit topics on the wiki can do it. Website Design.
