The Detroit Free Press ran an article on this.  It sounds like public
domain books will be shown in graphical format and for books that are under
copyright, a few text sentences of the book will be shown.

The article is at: http://www.freep.com/news/statewire/sw108792_20041215.htm

>>GOOGLE PARTNERS WITH LIBRARIES TO DIGITIZE CONTENT
>>Google has announced agreements with major libraries to digitize books
>>in their collections and make them available online. Google is funding
>>the project, which is said to have strong support from founders Larry
>>Page and Sergey Brin, who said that such dissemination of information
>>has always been one of their goals. Under the arrangements, Google
>>reportedly will scan all of the eight million books at Stanford
>>University's library and all of the University of Michigan's seven
>>million texts. For the others involved in the project--Harvard
>>University, Oxford University, and the New York Public Library--only
>>portions of the collections will be scanned. For books whose copyright
>>remains in effect, Google will scan the entire text but make available
>>only selected portions online. Books whose copyright has run out will
>>be available in their entirety. The announcement follows similar
>>programs from the Library of Congress as well as Amazon to digitize
>>content of books.

>>NEW RESEARCH PROJECT WILL ADDRESS UBIQUITOUS COMPUTING
>>Electronics maker Fujitsu and the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) have
>>announced a partnership to study ubiquitous computing. The notion of
>>ubiquitous, or pervasive, computing is that computers can be built into
>>all manner of objects, such as clothing, appliances, and cars, allowing
>>those devices to be networked through wired and wireless connections.
>>Researchers from both organizations will initially focus efforts on
>>developing a protocol that would permit various devices to work
>>properly with one another. Researchers will also work to develop
>>simpler and more secure wireless technologies, among other areas of
>>study. Mark Bernstein, president and center director of PARC, said the
>>project will allow researchers at PARC to make "cutting-edge technology
>>concepts and visions a reality." Bernstein also noted that the joint
>>project "will fuel new ideas about the potential for PARC research."

>>SPRINT AND NEXTEL ANNOUNCE MERGER PLAN
>>Sprint and Nextel this week announced plans for a $35 billion merger
>>that would create the third largest cellular carrier in the United
>>States, behind Cingular and Verizon. Verizon reportedly had been
>>considering making a bid to acquire Nextel; the deal with Sprint
>>stipulates that if another company scuttles the merger with its own
>>bid, that company would be assessed a fee of $1 billion. The combined
>>company, to be called Sprint Nextel, would have a subscriber base of
>>more than 35 million, and officials from the two companies said the
>>merger will allow them to save $12 billion in operating costs and
>>network upgrades. The deal is expected to close in the second half of
>>2005. Also under the deal, Sprint would spin off its local telecom
>>business. Gary Forsee, chairman and CEO of Sprint, will serve as
>>president and CEO of the new company, while Timothy Donahue, CEO of
>>Nextel, will become chairman. Forsee said that there will be layoffs as
>>a result of the merger.

>>MOVIE STUDIOS TARGET BITTORRENT FOR LEGAL ACTION
>>The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) has initiated more
>>efforts to curb illegal sharing of copyrighted movie files by targeting
>>operators of services that facilitate the exchange of such files over
>>the Internet. BitTorrent, as well as eDonkey and Direct Connect, locate
>>movies that certain users have available for download and direct other
>>users to those files. BitTorrent relies on "tracker" servers that keep
>>tabs on what files are available and where they are stored. Though they
>>do not host any files, those servers also enable the transfer of files
>>from one user to another. The MPAA's new lawsuits are aimed at
>>operators of those "tracker" servers rather than at individual traders
>>of copyrighted files. The MPAA has previously filed lawsuits against
>>several hundred individuals for illegally trading movie files. An
>>official from the MPAA said his organization sees the Internet as a
>>viable channel for distribution of films but that the current actions
>>target "those who have knowingly chosen to use the net for illegal
>>activity." Critics pointed out that operators of "tracker" servers
>>likely are not aware of exactly what files are being transferred.
