UC Davis Google Book Digitization Project Completed

June 2013 - September 2014

The successful and on time completion of the scanning project, which ran from June 2013 through September 2014, was achieved through the efficient teamwork of several departments at the library. Through collaboration with the California Digital Library (CDL) digitization team, over 36,000 volumes from the general and rare book collections were scanned and uploaded to Google Books and HathiTrust, a central repository for digital books.

The UC Davis Library sent public domain (out-of-copyright) books and journals to be digitized as part of UC's partnership in the Google Books Library Project. The Library's participation in the Google Books Library Project benefits the UC Davis community, as well as researchers and readers throughout the world.
