LibreDigital Warehouse Competes With Google Book Search

Steve Bryant reports that “publishers fight back against Google,” with their own book search service. The new service is named LibreDigital Warehouse and was announced by HarperCollins and LibreDigital the other day. This new service will give “publishers and booksellers the ability to deliver searchable book content on their own Web sites.” The technology empowers publishers to define rules on a partner and book title level, defining which pages are viewable, which pages are not, and what percentage of the pages are available. They will begin offer about 200 HarperCollins titles and increase that to 10,000 titles or so. More details on the service at
