Electronic archive project cancelled

The University Library was recently notified that netLibrary, a provider of electronic books over the Internet, will not proceed with a joint project to digitize books in U.Va.'s holdings. NetLibrary was going to digitize some 2,000 pre-1924 books on American history for the Electronic Text Center, to make them available worldwide.

"We are sorry that netLibrary is not going to proceed with this project now," University Librarian Karin Wittenborg said, "but we hope that in the future ways can be found of making these important documents of American history available as e-texts to Virginia libraries."
