Google Books

Google Books is another good place to look.  For some books you can read the entire book.  For others you can see a preview of the inside of the book. 

Google Book Search

What are books good for?

Use books to find historical information, in-depth research on a broad topic, tables of scientific information and more. Books can provide introductory and comprehensive information on your topic.  Books are great sources because they have been rigorously edited and fact-checked before they get published.  You will find high quality information in books.   One thing to watch out for is the year the book was published; some books may not be current enough for your topic.
