The Complutense University of Madrid - Google Agreement

30 de Noviembre de 2012 a las 13:31 h

A partnership agreement was signed with Google in 2006 for digitizing our public domain collections and offering free online access.

In 3 years we have scanned 120,000 books.

For now, Google has scanned more than 20 million books all around the world. Over 80 % of them are from the libraries participating in the program.

These books have been indexed with OCR and included in the overall Google's index:  Any word o any page of these 20,000,000 books is recovered when someone is searching in Google.

The project's success is evident when you consider that every 6 months over 98% of the books have been visited at least once, something that many librarians always dreamed.
