Books

books.google.com

  • Full-text keyword search of books (fiction, non-fiction, children’s)

  • To view books often requires sign in with your Google account

  • Good for obscure characters, research, browsing subjects because it gives context for the terms from within the book

  • Linked to WorldCat with “Find it in a Library” (available for some items)

“The aim of Google Book Search is to help you discover books and learn where to buy or borrow them, not read them online from start to finish.” http://books.google.com/intl/en/googlebooks/about/index.html
