Re: Faceted search across Cambridge Books & Journals Online

This is an excellent and much desired development! I have long 
argued the case for bridging the new "digital divide" between 
journal and book content, and I'm delighted to see this step 
being taken by Cambridge, while Johns Hopkins through its Project 
Muse's new initiative in adding book content is also going to 
allow for searching across book and journal content.
