Google Books

Google Books is a great supplementary resource to discover books that pertain to your research. The Google Books digitization project was a partnership between Google and some of the world's largest libraries to make electronic copies of millions of books.  With this incredible repository, you can access the full text of many books that are in the pubic domain.  You can also search for and read snippets of books that are under copyright protection.
