1. Google Books Library Project, 2004

The Google Books Library Project, also known as Google Book Search, lets you preview excerpts from books and bibliographic information. Or, if the book is out of copyright, it lets you view and download the entire book. Google is currently working with several major libraries to include their collection of books in search.
