Google Inc. collaboraties with institutional libraries to digitize large quantities of books via the Google Books Library Project. Public domain books are available on an open access basis. Copyrighted material is treated in one of three ways. Google negotiates with cooperating publishers through its Google Books Partner Program for "Limited Preview" of entire pages or sections within books by readers. For scanned books without copyright permissions, "snippets" are available. For remaining books basic information is provided without ability to search within the book. The snippets inform readers about the relevance of the book to their subject of inquiry. A Google Book Search conducted March 24, 2008 located no San Diego Museum of Art catalogues with either a Limited preview or Snippet View. There were a total of 43 catalogues published by the San Diego Museum of Art referenced in the search.
