How to Use Google Books

Google Books is one of my favorite search tools. Unfortunately, students often overlook it as a research tool unless they've been shown how it works. In this short video I provide a demonstrate of the key features of the current version of Google Books. 

In the video you'll see how to:

  • Search for a book. 
  • Refine search according to publication date.
  • Use Google Books to find books in your local library. 
  • Use Google Books to search within a book. 
  • Create an online bookshelf to share with others. 


If you just want to see how to use Google Books to find libraries near you that have house rare books, watch this short video that I posted on Instagram last Friday morning.
