APIs available for Google Books

You can merge full Google Books content into your website using our APIs.

Currently, there are two types of APIs:

  • The standard Google Books API lets your application perform full-text searches, retrieve book information, and manage your personal bookshelves.

  • The Embedded Viewer API lets you embed Google Books previews on your own website and control those previews.

Note: Some of these APIs may not work on blogs or other sites which do not allow JavaScript.
