The title's obviously a bit of an exaggeration, but LISNews has posted an article by Scott Boren that is in fact crammed full of interesting information about the state of full-text book searching. Scott appears to have initially written the article for the National Library of Education, and credits a talk given by Greg Notess at Computers in Libraries earlier this year as the inspiration for this article.
Cool tool I hadn't known about before - Booksearch x3, which simultaneously searches A9.com (aka Amazon), Google, and MSN Book Search. That should prove to be a real timesaver! Got some time to kill? Check out the site of Alan Taylor, the guy who whipped together Booksearch x3. Wow.
