Links to Online Books Added to MadCat Library Catalog
Earlier this week the UW Madison campus libraries added links from the MadCat library catalog to online versions of volumes in Google Books Search or the CIC shared digital repository,HathiTrust.
If an item we have in MadCat has been digitized by Google and is present in the Google Books or HathiTrust database, the MadCat record will have a link labeled "View Available Text Online". That link will take patrons to a list of digitized copies and give them information about copyright status, etc. Also, if the ISBN of a book is in Google Books, a cover image will be shown in the MadCat record.
