Google Books Preview Now Available in Catalog.  

When available, Google Books Preview allows users to search within the text of the book and see sections of the actual text where the search term occurs.  Often a limited number of pages or chapters are available in full text, depending on what permissions the publisher has granted.  The Google Books Preview link appears only if the publisher has given permission to make a preview available.

This free tool can expedite research, by determining to what degree a topic is covered in a given book before finding or requesting it.  Preview can also give a flavor of the text and can be useful for verifying citations!
