Google Searches Libraries

OK, I was away when this was announced but figured it was important enough to post anyway. From the Official Google Blog:
Aug. 24: “Today, we’re launching the Library Catalog Search feature in Google Book Search, designed to help casual readers and bookworms everywhere find gems in the libraries around the world. Queries on Google Book Search will automatically include results from library catalogs when appropriate. Each result includes a “Find Libraries” link to help readers find libraries that hold the book — ideally a library nearby, or if need be, a library far away.”
Time to check out how your library appears. Are you ready for the calls, extramual borrowers, non-cardholder requests? ILL just went on steriods.
At least one library is linking the other way to Google Book Search.
