Since Google Books actually has entire print books scanned onto Google's
this makes "search inside the book" possible.
Since library catalogs only have information about the library's print
books and not the entire book,
libraries catalogs can not search inside library books the way Google
I am not aware of any library catalog that incorporates Google Books
into the library catalog to take advantage of this feature.
Thanks for making me aware of this possibility.

Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood and probably will themselves not be realized. ~ Daniel Burnbam, Architect for Plan of Chicago, 1909
The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
