Yahoo Digitizing University Library Collections

Looks like Yahoo has jumped on the Google bandwagon (although they say the idea was in the works before Google unveiled their digitization project). Check it out on The Chronicle. Contrary to Google (and perhaps in reaction against all the recent Google controversy), "Leaders of the project stressed that no books that are under copyright will be scanned unless the copyright holders give explicit permission."

Always makes me curious what this will mean for libraries....
