Google Offers Index of Public Domain Works

Google serving up the entire contents of books and government documents that aren’t entangled in a copyright battle over how much material can be scanned and indexed from five major libraries.

The list of Google’s so-called “public domain” works — volumes no longer protected by copyright — include Henry James novels, Civil War histories, Congressional acts and biographies of wealthy New Yorkers.

The AP Has More, or just go to and “check out” some books.
