UM Extends Partnership with Google

First, as an aside, read more about Google’s logo today.  I know I’m behind because I didn’t know anything about the Doodle4Google project, but I think kids are pretty amazing.

Now, down to other business.  University of Michigan is extending its partnership with Google in regards to the digitization of books.  I know that there are a lot of conflicting views about this partnership in the first place.  I’ve talked about this issue in a previous posting.  It looks like the University Library gets more “stuff” out of this extended agreement including but not limited to:

  • Authority to review institutional subscription pricing
  • Sharing of public domain works for non-commercial purposes
  • Sharing of public doman works for users with print disabilities

You can find more information about the amendment here.  Or if you’re the legal document type, you can read the amendment, itself.
