Google Documents Iraqi Museum Treasures, Holocaust Assets Next?

If you were excited about the news of Google offering court decision via Google Scholar, you will LOVE this bit of news…

(AP, Nov 24): “Google is documenting Iraq’s national museum and will post photographs of its ancient treasures on the Internet early next year, Google chief Eric Schmidt announced Tuesday…Schmidt, who toured the museum with U.S. Ambassador Christopher Hill on Tuesday, said it was important for the world to see Iraq’s rich heritage and contribution to world culture.” http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5io6qPqq_iDbqzFBImt8S9jIHfGfwD9C5T8V84

This is absolutely marvelous and I am looking forward to them tackling the problem of locating the art and archives displaced during World War II.
