Just to show that there are benefits to hanging around Slashdot other than scoring geek points, I see that the inhabitants of the planet Google have just launched 'Google Scholar':<br>
<br>
scholar.google.com/<br>

This enables you to search for citations of references and check online library catalogues. A brief roadtest (looking for 'author: coulston j.c.n.' then 'author: coulston j.c.') just showed the fallibility of citers, all three results were to the Batsford RME volume (which Jon wrote as J.C.N. Coulston) and none to the Shire (where he was J.C. Coulston). Make of that what you will.<br>

It helps if you have a funny name.<br>

And you're surprised? ;-)<br>

That's why I deliberately chose a bloke with an odd name to look up!<br>

i would like to be able to look up book critiques that aren't with a bookseller or library. places where critiques aren't afraid to give their educated opinion. <p></p><i></i>
