Description: A growing collection of records for both recent and long out-of-print titles. Because a search may retrieve results from the full-text of many books, Google Books is most useful in helping you to identify titles of interest in your research. Results may be in one of four formats:
  • Full view: the full text of this title is available to read freely online. These are usually out-of-print titles.
  • Limited Preview: the publisher has provided a limited number of pages for preview only.
  • Snippets: For copyright reasons, the publisher does not allow the full-text view. However, users can see a few lines of context around their hits. This allows one to identify page numbers of potential interest, similar to an index.
  • No eBook Available: only the catalog information is available and no full-text has been scanned.
Users can locate copies of books through the "Find in a Library" link to WorldCat. A number of popular magazines and government documents have also been added to the Google Books service.
