Preview a Book
Did you know that you can preview many print books in WorldCat?
Click on the title of a book from the result list to view the WorldCat book page. Once on the page look below the book cover to see if Preview this item is available. If you see Preview this Item, you can actually take a peek online and get a better idea if the book will work for your paper. Now you can read the table of contents, search the book and even view limited pages. Most previews are through Google books but there might be more options depending on the book.
