    Interesting, isn't that basically just scanning the book in page by page?

    Good for a quick review of material before you purchase it.

    What is Google Print?
    Google's mission is to organize the world's information, but much of that information isn't yet online. Google Print aims to get it there by putting book content where you can find it most easily – right in your Google search results.

    How does Google Print work?
    Just do a search on the Google Print homepage. When we find a book whose content contains a match for your search terms, we'll link to it in your search results. Click a book title and you'll see the page of the book that has your search terms, along with other information about the book and "Buy this Book" links to online bookstores (you can view the entirety of public domain books or, for books under copyright, just a few pages or in some cases, only the title’s bibliographic data and brief snippets). You can also search for more information within that specific book and find nearby libraries that have it.

    Try it here

    I believe authors should be interested in this - Trip where are you :eek:

    Actually, I was interested in how they were handling publishing copywritten material.

    So what do publishes have to do in order to get their books listed? I couldn't pull up Master Visually Windows Server 2003 for example even though it is a fine book, IMHO, especially my copy 8)

    Beats me. :blink

    EDIT: My guess is that since the pages have to be scanned in by hand, it just takes them a long time to get every book in print onto google. :wink:
