AT - Google partners with the Austrian National Library

(Google European Public Policy Blog)
Google announces an agreement with the Austrian National Library to digitize works from the library, bringing its rare and unique collection to a global audience through Google Books. Through this agreement, the library will select up to 400,000 public domain books from its collections. Google will then digitize these works, making them available to anyone in the world with access to the web. The books we scan are available for inclusion in Europeana and in other digital libraries. The Austrian National Library is our tenth library partner in Europe, and we look forward to working with more libraries and other partners.
