What do you do if you’ve found an interesting looking item on the Wellcome Library catalogue but you’re not in the Wellcome Library? Or maybe you are in the Library, but aren’t sure if you want to request the item from the stack? Wouldn’t it be useful if you could get a bit more information?

We’ve added a new feature to our catalogue to help. Items that are likely to be in Google Books now have a ‘Search for this title at Google Books’ link to the right of the title, making it easy to
find and read all or part of it from your browser. This could help you decide to request the item from the stack – or could even save you a trip to the Library. Here’s an example of something that’s in the Wellcome Library catalogue where you can easily link to online text at Google Books.

We’d like to hear your comments on this, either via the blog or our feedback form, so please let us know what you think.
