This is a simple, temporary interface to a set of indexed MARC records from the University of Michigan's MBooks collection. The purpose of the interface of tri-fold:
Keep in mind that the interface to this index is simple, rudimentary, if not dumb. You can enter single words, phrases enclosed in quotes, and a few simple fielded searches (title=philosophy). You can apply quite a number of other queries as well, but nobody ever does. Ironically, multiple word queries not surrounded by quotes will fail.
Finally, for technical details, see the blog postings for get-mbooks and MBooks, revisited.
