Databases A-Z

  • Google Book Search is a discovery tool for books. Click a book title and you'll see the Snippet View which, like a card catalog, shows information about the book plus a few snippets - a few sentences of your search term in context. You may also see the Sample Pages View if the publisher or author has given Google permission or the Full Book View if the book is out of copyright. Links are also provided to book reviews, synopses, sources to purchase the book, and to libraries that hold the books.
