Google Books Now in Melvyl Test Version

The CDL (California Digital Library) is excited to announce that records for Google mass digitized books are now visible in a test copy of the Melvyl Catalog:

This was accomplished by means of Google Book Search API (application programming interface), a "hook" which extends the ability for UC students, faculty and staff to find the mass digitized content in a search tool they are very familiar with - the Melvyl Catalog. With this API, the UC community will be able to find not only what UC has digitized, but they will also have access to content digitized by any other Google partner.

Please see the attached press release and UC Talking Points for further information about this project, as well as the Google Book Search Blog:
