Search Library Catalog

Google Books

The Google Book Search lets you search the full-text of millions of books

The books come from publishers and libraries. Because the Google Book Search searches the full-text of the books in its database, you can sometime find more information that you would find searching a library catalog

Are the books available online?

No. Some are, but most of them are not. Sometimes you will have access to only a chapter or two, sometimes just the table of contents.

Find out more about the Google Book Search.

If you find a book that you need, contact the VC/UHV Library - we can get the book through our InterLibrary Loan Service. It's free.
