The Google Literacy Project

Reuters reports that Google, in conjunction with LitCam and UNESCO’s Institute for Lifelong Learning, has formed The Literacy Project. The site, hosted at Google.com, brings together Google Book Search, Google Scholar, Google Video, Google Maps, Blogger, and Groups into one landing page. The site was launched at the Frankfurt Book Fair with hopes to combat global illiteracy. Nikesh Arora, vice president of Google’s European operations said, “Google’s business was born out of a desire to help people find information.”
