"... When the Google Library
Project<http://books.google.com/googlebooks/library.html>began in
2004...the University of Michigan began including links in
Mirlyn <http://mirlyn.lib.umich.edu/>, their library catalog, to the Google
Books digital copy of items already held in their collections. In some
instances, due to the order in which Google’s scanning and processing takes
place, these links go to a copy that was digitized from another Google
Library partner. The Michigan Digitization
eventually digitize all items in Michigan’s collections...."

However, the article doesn't say whether this includes the ability to search
for specific text within the book.
