How to Add Your Book to Google Library Project

Google has introduced a great feature in which Google scans books and try to add them into their library.

As your book added to the Google library, then you will be able to see Knowledge Graph of your book.

Here I am sharing some useful information to get benefit of this rich feature of Google library project.

What is Google Library Project?

According to Google: “The Library Project is an important part of Google’s efforts to make it easier to find information – in this case, the information found in print books. By partnering with libraries to digitise books from their collections, we aim to build a searchable catalogue of the world’s books online. “

Google scans books and add to their library to make it possible for users to search on Google through millions of books written in many different languages, including books that are rare, out of print or generally unavailable outside of the library system.

Request to Scan a Book

If you are an author and would like to add a preview of your book to Google Books but you don’t have a copy and it hasn’t yet been scanned by Google, you can request to make it available on Google books.

Request to Remove a Book

If you are an author and would like to exclude your book from being scanned for the Library Project or remove the search option for a book that’s already been scanned, request here.

Request to Claim a Book

If you hold the rights to a book that was scanned as part of the Library Project, you can make a request to transfer it to the Partner Programme. In this case a portion of pages will become browsable to users and you’ll be able to add a link to your own website. Send your transfer request.
