Copac links to Google Book Search

The Copac national, academic, and special library catalogue now includes links to documents in Google Book Search. Where a record contains an ISBN a link appears on the right of the Full record display and will take one of three forms:

  • Google Full View: this link takes you to an online copy of the book.
  • Google Preview: this allows you to see a limited number of pages from the book.
  • Google Book Search: most links will be in this form. These links don’t offer a view of the book itself, but in some cases there will be options such as links to web sites mentioning the book, links to other works that reference the book etc.
