IRIS 42: Information and Research Instruction Suite for two-year colleges

Google Books

Libraries + Publishers + Google

If you haven't used Google Books, you're missing out on a great information resource. Google Books has partnered with libraries and publishers to scan whole books from cover to cover. That doesn't mean that you can see every page (although for some books you can) but you can search every page.

Using Google Books, you can search every single word of every single page of millions of digitized books. That's power.


After completing the module for Google Books, you should be able to:

  • Identify options for viewing books.
  • Demonstrate how to locate more information about the books.
  • Demonstrate how to locate books in a nearby library.
