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


Google Books is a service from Google that searches the full text of books and magazines that Google has scanned and converted to text and stored in its digital database.

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

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 Adapting the Consent and Waiver Form for Your Course (restricted to Unity account holders).


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