Statement from James Hilton, University of Michigan associate provost and interim librarian, regarding the lawsuit against the Google library project:
"...we cannot lose sight of the tremendous benefits this project will bring for society."
"The Google library project will transform the way we do research and scholarship. For the first time, everyone will be able to search the written record of human knowledge. It also allows libraries to create a digital archive that preserves this material for all time."
"It is important to note that we will not be sharing the full text of copyrighted works with the public. The Google library project will point searchers toward the works, and tell them how to buy or borrow a copy, but will not give them the full content of works in copyright."oh.
