Stanford University Press is pleased to announce that you can now search the full text of our books via Google Book Search. We are currently still in the process of uploading and scanning our backlist, but there are already over a thousand Stanford titles in Google Book Search. When the project is completed, all of our books will be searchable electronically.
This is terrific news, and I hope the idea spreads. University presses, despite the problems they face, are vital to the life of the mind, and the more they make their books accessible, the better off we are. (Via wood s lot, itself vital to the life of the mind.)
