Google Library and Harvard Offer On-Demand Books, Espresso Book Machine Comes to Cambridge

From the Article:

Starting next week, customers at Harvard Book Store will be able to buy in minutes books that once would have taken weeks to find. The service comes courtesy of the retailer’s new printing machine, which will make it the first bookseller in the nation with the ability to print 3.6 million titles on demand.

The Espresso Book Machine—produced by New York firm On Demand Books—has been rolled out to a select few stores to date, but the one at Harvard Book Store will be the first with access to the 2 million public-domain texts digitized by Google, which also announced a deal with On Demand last Thursday.
