Search for a book online with Google’s new web catalogue tool.
The new tool, launched on Monday, lets users browse online catalogues by category, price range, author, title, genre and publisher, as well as track down titles, authors, album art and more.
The catalogue tool is available to anyone with an internet connection, and it’s currently only available in India, Malaysia, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.
Google’s new catalog tool, called Google Book Catalog, is designed to help book lovers navigate the vast library of online bookstores.
The feature can also help users find out which books and audio-visuals are available on a given page, and can tell them what to look out for in an album cover or the artwork of a particular album cover.
Users can also find out what titles have been re-listed and which are being re-released, and where they are available.
The tool also features an option to mark books as available for free, so that users can see if they’re on the latest list.
“Bookstores are full of books, but there’s a lack of tools to track them,” said Jeev Kothari, founder and CEO of book consultancy eBooks & Audio.
“So we wanted to create a library of curated and accessible books.
With Google Book Catalogue, we were able to do just that.”
The new feature was launched by Google India, which operates the online catalogue and search function of Google.
Google also launched a similar catalogue tool for its own services, such as search, news and sports.
