On October 28, 2008 Google, The Authors Guild, and the Association of American Publishers (AAP) announced a settlement agreement in regards to Google Book Search. Although not a party to the agreement, Stanford supports the proposed settlement, and intends to continue with negotiations for its own participation.
Michael Keller, Stanford University Librarian, Director of Academic Information Resources, Publisher of the Stanford University Press, and Founder/Publisher of HighWire Press notes that “the proposed settlement offers significant benefits for society as a whole, providing access to electronic texts to libraries throughout the country, and dramatically expanding the amount of material that can be read (not just searched) by the public.”
