Google Books


Search a variety of books for keywords using Google Books. This website is a college student’s best friend. While the whole book the student needs will not be available online, if the book is in the database you can search the book for keywords. It will generate a list of page numbers for you to see the keyword in the text. No more searching through large textbooks without an index for hours on end!
