National Library of Catalonia - Partnership With Google

Partnership With Google

In 2007, the Biblioteca de Catalunya and four more Catalan libraries agreed to join the digitization project. These libraries have begun digitizing books of theirs that are in the public domain. The digitization partnership project is intended to make these books available on the Internet. The Biblioteca de Catalunya acts as coordinator and intermediary on behalf of the other four Catalan libraries participating in the project:

  • the library of the Monastery of Montserrat,
  • the Public Episcopal Library of the Seminary of Barcelona,
  • the Library of the Barcelona Excursionist Centre and
  • the Library of the Barcelona Athenaeum.

The Catalan libraries group became the second non-Anglo-Saxon collaborator to join the Google Books Library Project, within the Google Book Search program. In 1977, the National Library of Catalonia joined another Spanish participant in the project, the Complutense University of Madrid.

Famous quotes containing the word partnership:

    Society is indeed a contract.... It is a partnership in all science; a partnership in all art; a partnership in every virtue, and in all perfection. As the ends of such a partnership cannot be obtained in many generations, it becomes a partnership not only between those who are living, but between those who are living, those who are dead, and those who are to be born.
    Edmund Burke (1729–1797)
