From the New York Times, Online Library Wants It All, Every Book: “The directors of the new Alexandria Library, which christened a steel and glass structure with 250,000 books in October, have joined forces with an American artist and software engineers in an ambitious effort to make virtually all of the world’s books available at a mouse click.” This ambitious project is called the Alexandria Library Scholars Collective, but there is little substantive information available about it. The library will apparently share the resources of the Carnegie Mellon University Million Books Project, which by 2007 will provide access to the world’s largest e-book collection.
