ACCESS TO GOOGLE BOOKS

Google books is an interface that helps search and identify books that Google has scanned and made available in digital form. Some of the books are full text while others only give a preview. Once you get to the results page, you can filter the results to show only full text books by clicking on tools. This will give you search options. Click on the arrow next to Any View↓ to list the view options then click on full view. This reorganises the result page to display only titles that have full text access. If you find a book that you want to be referring to, explore the option of Add to my library facility provided when you open any of the selected book. This allows you to build your own virtual library. However, you need a google account to do this. Combined the JKUAT Library collection of Science Direct E-booksSpringer ebooks, ebrary and Taylor and Francis that are available through the JKUAT Library website at http://jkuat.ac.ke/departments/library/ you are definitely spoilt for choice!
