The British Library will be working with Google to digitize over 40 million pages of text ranging from 1700-1870. I can only imagine how chuffed I would have been to have access to digital books when I was completing my Master’s thesis on New France and Quebec, especially since I lacked the funds to peruse some of the original texts in Quebec City. A remarkable opportunity for historians and scholars. Of particular interest is the digitization of Sir Anthony Panizzi’s treatise Of the Processes and Judgements against those accused of High Treason and Membership of Proscribed Sects in the States of Modena, 1823, in the original Italian. I look forward to browsing through the work of the man who played a key role in the development of cataloguing standards.
