Jeanneney's point of departure is the announcement, in December 2004, that Google "was planning over a period of six years to digitize some 15 million printed volumes, or around 4.5 billion pages" (p 3). The intention was "to offer, gratis online, all works no longer in copyright and to give limited access to all others published since 1923" (p 4). In order to implement the project, an agreement was signed with several American libraries and the Bodleian Library at Oxford.
