ATG Newsflash: For the Love of Literacy–Better World Books and the Internet Archive Unite to Preserve Millions of Books – Against the Grain

This new relationship will allow Better World Books to provide a steady stream of books to be digitized by the Internet Archive, thereby growing its digital holdings to millions of books. Libraries that work alongside Better World Books will now make a bigger impact than ever. Any book that does not yet exist in digital form will go into a pipeline for future digitization, preservation and access.

Interesting.

One would think that the original publisher has it in electronic form and could just submit the file.

If the original publisher has no plans for future publishing, then it would seem like a big win for humanity.
