Google Goes Live With Print.Google.com

Google's "library digitization" project went live in Beta on May 26, 2005. Don't fret, yet. It's not all its cracked up to be. A search of "natural law," for example, turned up thousands of hits; but no full text! A search reveals the pages where you search terms appear, but then offers information of how to buy the book, or where to find copies. It appears to not provide full text of books - yet.

This only reinforces what many pundits have been saying: Google's project provides us with a virtual search engine, not a virtual library!
