Mysore University Library getting Digital with Google

Google is planning to digitise at least 800,000 books and manuscripts that are lying at the Mysore University in Karnataka.The Mysore University library has around 100,000 manuscripts written on both paper and palm leaves, including India's first political treatise, the 'Arthasastra' written in the 4th century BC by Kautilya.

What google gain: Google will get free links to these materials once the necessary patenting is complete.
