Google Book Search Listings Now Embeddable

Titles from from Google’s Book Search index can now be embedded in non-Google Web pages. From Inside Google Book Search:

We’re launching a set of free tools that allow retailers, publishers, and anyone with a web site to embed books from the Google Book Search index. We are also providing new ways for these sites to display full-text search results from Book Search, and even integrate with social features such as ratings, reviews, and readers’ book collections.

Google’s Preview tool is already being used by publishers (including O’Reilly), retailers, libraries and other sites.

Basic Book Search previews are generated through Google’s preview wizard (example below). Customized results can be built with the Book Search APIs.
