In Coming Weeks: "My Library" Option on Google Book Search Will Be Searchable Again

Yesterday, Mr. Carver over at LISNews put up a post titled, "My Library Search Disappears."

The post linked to material from Webmaster World where users were discussing how you could NO LONGER keyword search just the books you saved in your own library. In other words, the ability to develop a collection of titles from Google Book Search and then limit/restrict a search TO ONLY those titles was gone.

ResourceShelf was able to contact Google and we received an answer about this issue. Turns out, this feature has been gone for just about a month.

From Google's Response:

Last month, we launched a new My Library that enabled users to create and then share collections of books by adding them to "bookshelves." In the coming weeks, we'll be restoring the ability to search within My Library by enabling users to search across all of their bookshelves as well.

Stay Tuned. Hopefully, the "coming weeks" will not be that long a wait.
