In our article about Google's library digitization project last week and this SEW Blog post, we noted another large library digitization project from the Internet Archive. Today, the Information World Review article: Internet Archive to build alternative to Google has more details.
10 large libraries are taking part in the project including the Carnegie Mellon University Library, The Library of Congress, and the University of Toronto Library.
In a statement, the Internet Archive describes the Text Archive as an Open Access archive that will "ensure permanent and public access to our published heritage". Over a million books have been committed to the Text Archive by the member institutes, with 50,000 available in the first quarter of 2005.
