50,000 Norwegian books available on the net

The Norwegian National Library has just made 50,000 Norwegian books accessible on the net - at no charge and perfectly legal. The service, Bokhylla.no was officially opened by Minister of Culture Trond Giske. Based on the results of the High North Project, the National Library through this project will make available on the Internet all books published in Norway through three decades, namely those between 1790-99, 1890-99 and 1990-99. During a three year period, the public will get easy access to a considerable body of Norwegian literature, around 50,000 books. 10,000 books were made available when the service opened - The Norway Post
