UK-based Archive CD Books Project expands its historical book digitization services into the US.
The UK-based Archive CD Books Project is expanding its historical book digitization services into the United States partnering with newly formed Archive CD Books USA.

The project, started in 2000, reproduces old, rare books while keeping them intact (it's not uncommon for digitizers to dismantle books so they can feed pages through scanners), then publishes the content on CDs. The new US affiliate joins branches in Ireland, Australia and Canada. You can access all the affiliates' Web sites from <www.archivecdbooks.com>.

Bob Velke, president of Wholly Genes Software <www.whollygenes.com> (maker of genealogy computer program The Master Genealogist) manages Archive CD Books USA.
