This book discusses how libraries can go beyond Googleas basic search and Scholar functions to expand services for their patrons.

Applications explored include Google Co-op, Google News, Google Docs a Spreadsheets, Google Calendar, and Google Talk. This book also discusses different important aspects of the companyas expansion of functions, such as the failure of the Google Answers experiment, the broad variety of free Google applications that librarians can use to collaborate, and the success of Googleas Blogger, among others.
