French National Library to open archives to Microsoft Bing

"Microsoft's Bing search engine will give special treatment to search results from the archives of the French National Library, the two organizations announced Thursday. During a visit to Paris this week, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer signed an agreement with Bruno Racine, the library's president, to improve Bing's access to the archive. The agreement will increase the number of potential users of the library's archives worldwide, Racine said in a statement. The library is making it easier for Microsoft to link to digitized versions of over a million documents in its archives. In return, Microsoft will make search results from the library more prominent" - PCWorld
