GBS: Revised Virginia Library Agreement

I don’t know how I missed this, but when the University of Virginia signed its revised digitization agreement with Google, that agreement was made public. Peter Hirtle has examined the revisions and likes what he sees. In particular, it makes the public-domain scans universally available earlier, and it makes pricing reviews for the Institutional Subscription more transparent. These aren’t dramatic changes, but they are incremental improvements in the overall deal.
