Sabin Americana, Based on Joseph Sabin's famed bibliography, Bibliotheca Americana — A Dictionary of Books Relating to America From its Discovery to the Present Time, Sabin Americana, — is an online collection of books, pamphlets, serials and other works about the Americas, from the time of their discovery to the early s.
Sabin Americana, — is rich in original accounts of discovery and exploration, pioneering and westward expansion, the U. Civil War and other military actions, Native Americans, slavery and abolition, religious history and more. Scholars have even reported crumpled pages, obscuring thumbs and fingers, and smeared or blurry images. Getting this right allows us to render the book in a way that follows the format of the original book. Despite our best efforts you may see spelling mistakes, garbage characters, extraneous images, or missing pages in this book.
Based on our estimates, these errors should not prevent you from enjoying the content of the book. The technical challenges of automatically constructing a perfect book are daunting, but we continue to make enhancements to our OCR and book structure extraction technologies. This method would only improve scanned words that are hard to recognize because of the scanning process and cannot solve errors such as turned pages or blocked words.
Scholars have frequently reported rampant errors in the metadata information on Google Books — including misattributed authors and erroneous dates of publication. Geoffrey Nunberg , a linguist researching on the changes in word usage over time noticed that a search for books published before and containing the word "internet" turned up an unlikely results. Woody Allen is mentioned in books ostensibly published before he was born. Google responded to Nunberg by blaming the bulk of errors on the outside contractors.
Other metadata errors reported include publication dates before the author's birth e. Metadata errors based incorrect scanned date makes research using the Google Books Project database difficult. Google has shown only limited interest in cleaning up these errors. Some European politicians and intellectuals have criticized Google's effort on linguistic imperialism grounds.
They argue that because the vast majority of books proposed to be scanned are in English, it will result in disproportionate representation of natural languages in the digital world. German, Russian, French, and Spanish, for instance, are popular languages in scholarship. The disproportionate online emphasis on English, however, could shape access to historical scholarship, and, ultimately, the growth and direction of future scholarship. While Google Books has digitized large numbers of journal back issues, its scans do not include the metadata required for identifying specific articles in specific issues.
This has led the makers of Google Scholar to start their own program to digitize and host older journal articles in agreement with their publishers. The Google Books Library Project is aimed at scanning and making searchable the collections of several major research libraries. If a book is out of copyright and in the public domain, the book is fully available to read or download.
In-copyright books scanned through the Library Project are made available on Google Books for snippet view. Regarding the quality of scans, Google acknowledges that they are "not always of sufficiently high quality" to be offered for sale on Google Play. Also, because of supposed technical constraints, Google does not replace scans with higher quality versions that may be provided by the publishers. The project is the subject of the Authors Guild v.
Google lawsuit, filed in and ruled in favor of Google in , and again, on appeal, in Copyright owners can claim the rights for a scanned book and make it available for preview or full view by "transferring" it to their Partner Program account , or request Google to prevent the book text from being searched.
The number of institutions participating in the Library Project has grown since its inception. Other institutional partners have joined the project since the partnership was first announced: . The announcement soon triggered controversy, as publisher and author associations challenged Google's plans to digitize, not just books in the public domain, but also titles still under copyright.
September—October : Two lawsuits against Google charge that the company has not respected copyrights and has failed to properly compensate authors and publishers. One is a class action suit on behalf of authors Authors Guild v. Google, Sept. McGraw Hill v. Google , Oct. It also added a new browsing interface along with new "About this Book" pages. August : The University of California System announced that it would join the Books digitization project.

Google has been quite secretive regarding its plans on the future of the Google Books project.
Scanning operations had been slowing down since at least , as confirmed by the librarians at several of Google's partner institutions. At University of Wisconsin, the speed had reduced to less than half of what it was in However, the librarians have said that the dwindling pace could be a natural result of maturation of the project — initially stacks of books were entirely taken up for scanning whereas now Google only needed to consider the ones that have not been scanned already.
Despite winning the decade-long litigation in , The Atlantic has said that Google has "all but shut down its scanning operation. It commented that the decade-long legal battle had caused Google to lose its ambition. Through the project, library books were being digitized somewhat indiscriminately regardless of copyright status, which led to a number of lawsuits against Google.
By the end of , Google had reportedly digitized over seven million books, of which only about one million were works in the public domain. Of the rest, one million were in copyright and in print, and five million were in copyright but out of print. In , a group of authors and publishers brought a major class-action lawsuit against Google for infringement on the copyrighted works.
Google argued that it was preserving "orphaned works" — books still under copyright, but whose copyright holders could not be located. The Authors Guild and Association of American Publishers separately sued Google in for its book project, citing "massive copyright infringement.

The settlement received significant criticism on a wide variety of grounds, including antitrust, privacy, and inadequacy of the proposed classes of authors and publishers. The settlement was eventually rejected,  and the publishers settled with Google soon after. The Authors Guild continued its case, and in their proposed class was certified. Google appealed that decision, with a number of amici asserting the inadequacy of the class , and the Second Circuit rejected the class certification in July , remanding the case to the District Court for consideration of Google's fair use defense.

In Authors Guild filed another appeal against Google to be considered by the 2nd U. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York. Google won the case unanimously based on the argument that they were not showing people the full texts but instead snippets, and they are not allowing people to illegally read the book. Authors Guild tried again in to appeal the decision and this time took their case to be considered by the Supreme Court.
The case was rejected, leaving the Second Circuit's decision on the case intact, meaning that Google did not violate copyright laws. Such clarification is important in the new digital age as it affects other scanning projects similar to Google. Other lawsuits followed the Authors Guild's lead. In a German lawsuit, previously filed, was withdrawn. This is the first such lawsuit to be filed against Google in China. Google agreed on Nov 20 to provide a list of Chinese books it had scanned, but the company refused to admit having "infringed" copyright laws.
In March , Thomas Rubin, associate general counsel for copyright, trademark, and trade secrets at Microsoft, accused Google of violating copyright law with their book search service. Rubin specifically criticized Google's policy of freely copying any work until notified by the copyright holder to stop. Google licensing of public domain works is also an area of concern due to using of digital watermarking techniques with the books. Some published works that are in the public domain, such as all works created by the U. Federal government , are still treated like other works under copyright, and therefore locked after From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
