Google had given time for publishers to tell Google which books they would not like to be part of Google Print by First November. Google will resume scanning of library books from Tuesday.

Google announced this in August because of a controversy raised over the library project. Author’s Guild and some publishers sued Google and Google had to stop digitizing library books.

“We think most publishers and authors will choose to participate in the publisher program in order to introduce their work to countless readers around the world.

But we know that not everyone agrees, and we want to do our best to respect their views too. So now, any and all copyright holders – both Google Print partners and non-partners – can tell us which books they’d prefer that we not scan if we find them in a library.

To allow plenty of time to review these new options, we won’t scan any in-copyright books from now until this November”. [source]

In October 2004 Google announced a program called Google Print. The goal of Google Print was to make the full text of hard to find books searchable.

Later Google improved the program to scan complete collections of libraries which signed up with Google.

Larry Page, Google co-founder and president of Products, announced the extension of the Google Print Program and said, “Our work with libraries further enhances the existing Google Print program, which enables users to find matches within the full text of books, while publishers and authors monetize that information.

Page added. “Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information, and we’re excited to be working with libraries to help make this mission a reality”. [source]
