“Microsoft Corp. struck a deal Friday with the British Library to scan 100,000 books from its vast collection and make them freely available for reading and searching on the Internet next year.
“The move by the Redmond, Wash.-based software giant is the latest foray into a hotly competitive battle among the leading Internet players over digitizing that old-fashioned favorite, the printed book.”
