Build An Online Version of Your Library and Share It Via Google Books

The new version of Google Books offers a few tools which will likely have an impact on the future of medical education. This Google service helps you:

- Create your own virtual library online
- Review the books
- Share the list
- Let people subscribe via RSS and get updated when you add new books
- Search within the books you selected

The newly launched version of Google Books makes all that possible and more.

For example, a residency program or a medical school can create a list of recommended books which can be reviewed online by faculty, residents and medical students. Click here to see a sample medical library I assembled today in 5 minutes (a screenshot is shown above).

You have to be signed in with a Google account in order to create your own library.
