In early July, the Library of Congress Law Library will begin sending thousands of volumes of U.S. Congressional hearings to Google for digitization. The first shipment will consist of 5,000 volumes, but library officials anticipate that they will send 10,000 volumes a month to the search-engine company, says Mark Strattner, the law libraryâ€™s chief of collection services.
