UC San Diego Google Mass Digitization Project

Jim Cheng, Head of the International Relations & Pacific Studies Library/East Asia Collection, UC San Diego

In April 2008, the University of California, San Diego sent its first shipment of books to be digitized as part of the Google Book Search Library Project, a global effort launched in 2004 to digitize collections from the world’s top universities and libraries to make them searchable and discoverable online. The UC San Diego Libraries will contribute thousands of volumes from its East Asia collection and from its International Relations & Pacific Studies Library, in such diverse subject areas as history, literature, political science, public policy and economics. Speakers will discuss the project background, estimated future impacts, local processes, applied standards, technical features, and lessons learned.
