Google Book covers added to Library Catalogue

The Library has now added Google Book covers to our catalogue. This will allow you to see the book cover (where available), the contents and also find more information about the book. When you click on the "information about this book" link you will see an 'About this book' page with basic bibliographic data like title, author, publication date, length and subject. For some books you may also see additional information like key terms and phrases, references to the book from scholarly publications or other books, chapter titles and a list of related books. For every book, you'll see links directing you to bookstores where you can buy the book and libraries where you can borrow it. This should be especially useful for Distance Education students who may wish to borrow the book from a nearby University or public library. Look for the "Find this book in a library" link to find a local library that has a copy.
