The Partner Program is an online-book marketing program designed to help publishers and authors promote their books. Publishers and authors submit either a digital copy of their book in or format, or a print copy to Google, which are made available on Google Books for preview.

They can also choose to make the book fully viewable, and even allow users to download a PDF copy.
