Google now has an agreement with the Complutense University of Madrid to add its library to Google's book scanning project. This is first library in a non-English-speaking country to join the project. You can read more about it here.
I doubt that this is raising too many eyebrows. Google is on a mission, even if publishers don't agree with all of the components of the project. The real big news will come when Google and the publishers come to an agreement about scanning copyrighted works in order to create this massive electronic index.
