U. of Michigan places 1 millionth scanned book online

The University of Michigan has reached the 1 million book milestone in its OA digitization program. That figure represents around 13% of the 7.5 million books in the library's collections. The books are available via the library's catalog or via Google Book Search, as part of the Michigan Digitization Project. (Thanks to the Chronicle Wired Campus blog.)
