Google and Libraries
partners, not rivals
Google Books is a nifty tool, but you should use it in addition to, not instead of, your college library's catalog.
By partnering with library databases that have been around for decades, Google Books can add new dimensions to your research.
Remember that books in Google Books are real books that have been scanned and digitized. If you use information from a book in Google Books, you must provide a citation in your list of sources. Follow the rules in your style manual for an online book in a database, or ask your instructor.
