Chapter 25 of The Complete Guide to Using
Whitmer uses the title The Divine Nine: The History of African American Fraternities and Sororities by Lawrence C. Ross, Jr. to illustrate the chapter. In great demand at another library (Whitmer's former employer), the copies of this book were frequently checked out or on search. As Whitmer recounts, Google Books provides limited preview access to The Divine Nine--cover, title page, table of contents and first chapter. As a result, students were able to access the information they needed to complete their assignment.
The ebook version of The Complete Guide to Using Google in Libraries is available through the TWU Libraries here.
