Google will work with the CIC to digitize select collections across all its libraries, up to 10 million volumes. Readers will have access to many distinctive and unique collections held by the consortium. Users will be able to explore collections that are global in scope, like Northwestern's Africana collection or dive deep into the universities' unique Midwest heritage, including the
University of Minnesota's Scandinavian and forestry collections, Michigan State's extensive holding in agriculture, Indiana University's folklore collection, and the history and culture ofChicago collection at the University of Illinois-Chicago
