Google Books Getting Circulation Data from Partner Libraries

From the Disruptive Library Technology Jester, certain libraries are providing Google Books with anonymized circulation data to feed into their relevance ranking algorithm.  I would love to know which libraries are providing this data.  Anyone?

    I don’t know. It was mentioned in the course of the ALCTS presentation, but I don’t think there was a follow-up question as to who was providing it. I assume it is one or more of the Google Book Search Library program…

    This is just one more reason why libraries ought to have a place that _they_ own where they can pool their metadata. Yes, we’re working on it :)
