Google Books

Search the full text of books and magazines stored in Google’s digital database



The general Google Terms of Service apply to this app.


Google Books is a service that lets you search the full text of books and magazines that Google has scanned, converted to text and stored in its digital database.

For some aspects of Books, you need to log in with your NC State credentials; e.g., to edit or review books you may be helping publish.


Books is primarily a personal app, so there is no limitation on how to use it in terms of accessibility.

Student consent?

Before using this app to share student information, you may need to obtain your students’ consent as required by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). See FERPA Forms.
