Rainey’s Tidbits

Random pieces of nonsense

Google Book Search / Google Recherche de livres

So far, probably the coolest thing we’ve done with our library service’s online catalogue is the addition of a Google Book Search widget (or ‘Google Recherche de livres’ on the French side of the catalogue) that displays a link to Google Book Search if there is content in their database, displays a link to their electronic version if any of the book can be previewed online, and displays a thumbnail if their database content includes the cover art.

Is this not delightful?

(Examples in French and English).
