Hathi Trust

With a tag-line that reads "There's an elephant in the library":

Called the HathiTrust, the new group already holds 78 terabytes of information—that's over 731 million pages of content.
Also, the government of Uruguay received a donation from the government of Spain of a virtual library containing nearly 1500 titles.
