eBooks from European Libraries

eod eBooks - eBooks on Demand - is a European project to make millions of books in European libraries available electronically on demand.

From About eod: "Users will be able to order eBooks via the common library catalogues; the libraries will then digitise the requested item and send it to the user via the EOD service network. The books digitised in this way will simultaneously be incorporated into the digital libraries of the participating libraries and thus be accessible on the Internet."
Currently the project includes 13 libraries from 8 European countries. The UK and

France are not on the list of participating countries: Austria and Germany are.
