Stanford expands Google Books agreement



Today, Stanford University announced that it has expanded our original partnership to take advantage of our settlement agreement to make millions of works from its library collection accessible to readers, researchers, and book lovers across the United States. That means that if the settlement agreement is approved by the court, anyone in the US will be able to find, preview and buy online access to books from Stanford's library. Stanford joins the University of Michigan, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and University of Texas, who also expanded their original partnerships with Google.

Google was founded on the principle of making information more accessible to more people, so we're excited that Stanford has joined in our continuing efforts to bring these books to more people around the country. You can read more at the Stanford University website here.
