Google has launched a resource page to market its Internet services to teachers of kindergarten through high school.
The Google For Educators page offers a list of services that teachers may find helpful in the classroom. Those services include online search for books and video, Google's satellite mapping service Earth, and its online applications for word processing and spreadsheets, photo editing and blogging.
Google has also launched a teacher newsletter, and is planning to hold a one-day technology seminar in November at its Mountain View, Calif., headquarters for K-12 educators.
Meanwhile, Google on Thursday said history books and documents in the University of Wisconsin-Madison libraries and in the Wisconsin Historical Society Library would be available through Google's book search. The 7.2 million holdings are in the public domain and without copyright restrictions.
UW-Madison is the latest college to join the Google Books Library Project. Others include the University of California, University of Michigan, Harvard University, Stanford University, the New York Public Library, Oxford University and the Universidad Complutense de Madrid.
