WANHS Library cataloguing trial using Google Books

I have just catalogued a sample of WANHS library books using Google Books. The results were pretty comprehensive, I could find most books, except for one printed in 1643, a theatre programme and one particular edition of a book published in small runs.

However, using Booksearch across the collection reurns a Server error - not great news.

I have added an RSS feed of newly catalogued books to the blog, and it might be possible to add it to the main website.
