Google Books

Google books will be getting more and more popular as time goes by. There’s no doubt about that because it has a lot to offer publishers, authors and book sellers who are trying to find more ways to market their products. When Google Print became Google Books in 2005, a lot of people thought that it was a measure to hide behind the Library Project they had started to digitize books. And even though they had partners like Oxford, Harvard, the New York Public Library, the University of Michigan and Stanford, it was not enough to sway these people or avoid the law from taking a legal standing in the matter. Google wanted to take possession of out-of-copyright books, they began to accuse the Internet giant for the program they were trying to create.

However, Google Books didn’t listen to them and continued to develop their Library Project as more libraries joined up with them to support their cause. They were bent on showing the world that their only intention was to make it easier to browse and navigate Book Search and come up with what you were looking for. When they came up with the new browsing interface, everybody welcomed the idea and a lot of people began to think that the company’s main goal was to help people find and browse books more easily and not take over anyone’s copyrights. How could anybody think that about Google’s Library Project? It's hard to say, but some people did exactly that.

As more and more libraries joined the Book Search program, Google added a substantial amount of books in German, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, Latin and other languages. There was no stopping them now as they developed new technologies for screen readers and Braille. They really wanted to show the world how wonderful this would be for everybody. Way to go, Google. Keep up the good work on this program because a lot of us are going out of our way to help make this a success.

Books Will be Available in Every Language

By December 2007, the Book Search program was available in 35 languages and thousands of authors and publishers from around the world joined their Partner Program as the company continued its growth, proving to us at the same time that this kind of innovation in the way we access information by the stroke of a key was the way we’d expand our intelligence. Everybody can have access to this tool. You just have to know how to use it and once you do, you’ll find out that it has the power to change the way we understand our world. We can have access to millions of pages of books all around the globe and this can help us obtain knowledge to knock down barriers, do away with taboos, and get rid of a lot of differences between people. It’s information time and we have access to it, all of us, right here on the screen, over the Internet. Why not make use of it to better ourselves? If this is the philosophy behind Google Books, then I strongly support them. It’s for our good and everybody will benefit from it. And by everybody I mean authors, publishers, marketers, the common people, school children, etc. We all get something out of it and we protect copyright holders by providing information based on their search term.

At Wade Hilton from Jamaica we're fascinated by all of this and can’t understand why the whole thing has become so controversial because if it’s Google’s plan to make a book, any book, discoverable online and help the authors and publishers sell them, then that’s stupendous. Don’t you think? Google’s not a threat to books. No one can say that. They want to help publishers and authors make use of the new tools and opportunities for marketing their books online. They want to help people find books so that there will be an incentive to keep on publishing them, so that people can see them, discover them and eventually buy them.

We're all Bound to Reap the Benefit

We at Wade Hilton from Jamaica find it hard to believe that there are people who do not like what Google’s doing with this project, for everyone like us who reads, writes, publishes and sells books will reap the benefits. Just imagine how easy it would be to find a book out of publish for years, decades, even centuries and be able to read it right here on the screen. Let’s get together and give Google our support for they’re trying to do good for all of us. Of course they must benefit from what they're doing, but it's only fair to see that in this case it's for all of us.

At Wade Hilton from Jamaica we know you have your say on the matter, so please don’t hesitate to let us know whether you think Google is doing something good or not. Take a minute or two to voice your opinion on this issue that has become both legal and social. It'll be common talk for a long time to come as each sector has its say on the program.
