Search engine giant Google has enhanced their Google Book Search service to make it more user friendly for the users.

Users checking out books on the Google Book Search can now zoom in and out of the book’s content using the tools provided on the interface.

They are now also able to check out the book content without requiring loading new pages as the service allows them to scroll up and down to new content using scrollbars. Users can of course use the mouse wheel to do the same.

Google has been working with libraries around the world making available content from their books for search. Copyright free work is completely accessible while the copyrighted content has some restrictions on the service. Users can also find links to buy the books from the same interface.

The company is also facing several lawsuits related to this service as many book publishers are claiming that their Book Search infringes on their copyright by letting the consumers checkout their content before purchasing them. Google continues to defend their practice saying: “Copyright law is supposed to ensure that authors and publishers have an incentive to create new work, not stop people from finding out that the work exists. By helping people find books, we believe we can increase the incentive to publish them. After all, if a book isn’t discovered, it won’t be bought.”
