The [European] Commission noted that Google's digital library project had "triggered a reflection" on how to deal with Europe's cultural heritage in the digital age.Nice to see that Google is getting people/institutions to think and act in positive ways. (And not just talk about copyright concerns.)
The project in Europe will include two million books, films, photographs, manuscripts and other works which are expected to become available through the European Digital Library by 2008. The number of digital assets will rise to 6 million by 2010.
