Google Books API and the OPAC

Google has an API for Google Books that can add informaiton to the OPAC.
The Google Book Search Book Viewability API enables developers to:
  • Link to Books in Google Book Search using ISBNs, LCCNs, and OCLC numbers
  • Know whether Google Book Search has a specific title and what the viewability of that title is
  • Generate links to a thumbnail of the cover of a book
  • Generate links to an informational page about a book
  • Generate links to a preview of a book
