Google Book Reader & Preview on Case Catalog
See inside your book title—Google's Book Reader & Preview are now enabled on the Case Catalog! Reading inside the book may help you discover new titles, or find a book that meets your needs when the title alone is not descriptive enough.
Do a title search on our Catalog—if the item has been scanned by the Google Book Project, the file will appear below the Catalog information about the book. Tap the spacebar on your keyboard and most browsers will move to the bottom of the screen so you can see examples like these, from 1882 to 2006:
Development of Emotions and Emotion Regulation:an internalization model, Kluwer International Series in Outreach Scholarship (2006)
Jane Austen's Emma, with an Introduction by Lionel Trilling:
Dickens, by Adolphous William Ward (1882):
Enhance your discovery when you search for books, by looking at the end of the catalog record—you might be able to see a book in it's original publication format, or decide if it's what you need by reading some of it (Google Preview, for newer works.) If Google-scanned text exists, the Case Catalog will find it and bring it to you!
