Harvard’s Alternative to Google Books In 2004, Google decided to seek out millions of books gathering dust in library stacks, digitize them, and make them available to you at the click of a mouse. All you had to do was notice the advertisements in the margins. But after Google extended its archiving effort from books in the public domain to those under copyright, the U.S.-based Authors Guild filed a class action lawsuit in 2005. Then, while negotiating a settlement, Google decided to sell not merely ads but the books themselves, with or without the specific consent of copyright holders, on the ground that the guild could stand in as their legal representative. Not so fast, said federal judge Denny Chin, as he rejected one Guild-Google settlement after another. In 2010, university librarians met in a national conference and decided to create an alternative called the Digital Public Library of America. “This is a civic-minded engagement,” says Kenny Whitebloom, who manages the library project.
