6 countries sign agreement to take European libraries online.

Reported by Austrian TV, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland and Hungary have signed an agreement to take national libraries online - in something of a re-buff for Google's idea to do the same. The idea was born of European Commission President, Jose Manuel Durao Barroso and EU Council President Jean-Claude Juncker.

Google's US project encompasses over 15 million works from the libraries of Stanford, Harvard, Michigan, Oxford and New York.
