Google Books Search

Google, in conjunction with a number of large research universities, is in the process of digitizing millions of books. For older books, where copyright has expired, anyone can view the entire book through Google Books (Look for books labelled "Full View"). Where copyright still applies - generally for newer books - a limited preview is often available.
