I've had replies from across the US, from Spain, Netherlands and UK. So far, all report the same i.e. these links work. Are any of the Google-5 libraries cataloging them in OCLC or in some other service, or have plans to do so? The search in the book function works nicely for these out of copyright titles.

Would some of you check to see if the url's below give you the same titles I get from google print. I think, but don't know, that Google is using a random unique 12 digit identifier for individual books. Here's a brief list of some I've found so far. Please let me know if you get the same books If there is a unique identifier for each book then it seems to me that some of us might want to investigate putting google links in our opacs. Does anyone know if these are stable? Some of the google print functionalities aren't real stable at the moment, particularly the find in a library function was problematic for me. And at least one of these titles did not show a "find this book in a library" link to Open WorldCat. These are JUST from searching for public domain titles. The Records of Living Officers of the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps did not have an OCLC/find in a library type link as far as I can tell. http://print.google.com/print?hl=en&id=4N3pJ4zrNIMC Title The Attic Theatre Author(s) A.
