Global search engine giant Google.com (GOOG) has launched a book search China partnership program in China.
Tsinghua University Publishing House and Juvenile and Children Publishing House have become its first batch of partners for the program.
Google.com's new service is free to publishing houses, printing institutions and individual writers.
Chen Yuhua, a manager who is responsible for organizing this platform, says that through integrating books of different categories, it provides much convenience for publishers and writers. He also says writers need not worry about their copyrights being violated with Google's technology support and they can share the income through the ads placed on Google's site.
At present, the platform is run in English, but Kai-Fu Lee, president of Google China, says that his company will soon launch a Chinese interface book search.
