Multiple Library Catalog search via Google Books

"...find books in libraries around the world ... from library catalogs... If your search query suggests you’re looking for a particular book – for example, if you enter the title of a book – you’ll see search results from books we’ve [Google] digitized, plus, at the bottom of the search results page, relevant library catalog results to help you find books in [geographically] nearby libraries. ...library catalogs contain only metadata – basic information like author, title and subject – so results from catalogs are not based on the full text of books."
