Yahoo! Can Scan Books Too

Keeping up with Google must be tough, but Yahoo! is doing its best, joining with a number of other companies and institutions to form the Open Content Alliance.

The founding members of the OCA include Yahoo, Adobe, the Internet Archive, the European Archive, Prelinger Archives, H-P Labs, the U.K.'s National Archives, O'Reilly Media Inc, the University of California and the University of Toronto.

The universities will provide the initial content, while Yahoo will power the search engine, and along with Adobe and H-P Labs will provide technology. [from MarketWatch]
