Mass Digitisation within the Framework of a Public-Private Partnership between the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek and Google

In the coming years the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek will digitise its complete copyright-free historical holdings of printed works within the framework of a public-private partnership. A duration of several years is scheduled for the undertaking and presumably over one million titles will be scanned in the course of the project.
The digital copies will be available via the OPAC of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek and they can be integrated in German and European library projects by means of their metadata. In this manner the unique historical holdings of the library will be made accessible to millions of people all over the world.
