How to locate books found on Google Book Search

Question: I found a book on Google Books Search (GBS) that is owned by Stanford University Libraries. Can I borrow the book, or get a digital copy of the book (or of specific pages of the book)?

Answer: We are delighted that you have found books of interest to you through Google Book Search. In Google Book Search, you can click on "About this Book", then click on "Find this book in a library" (on the right side of the page). This will provide you with a list of libraries throughout the country who own the book. If you do not have access to any of the owning libraries, then your can request the item via Inter-Library Loan through your local library.

Stanford cannot send you copies of the pages, as the scanned copies of these items are currently available only through Google Book Search.
