Browse and search the book catalogue

You can browse and search for your books in the book catalogue of your Partner Centre account. The book catalogue displays an overview of each book, including title, author, list price and status.

To find more details and settings for a specific book, click on the title and go to the individual book's 'Book info' page. You can also use the search function to look up specific books or apply filters to the format and show the books format and status columns.

Your books will appear on the book catalogue page regardless if they're only available for preview on Google Books or sold on Google Play. All books that are sold on Google Play can be previewed on Google Books. Deactivated books aren't shown by default and are only shown if you select show books format and status.

If you download your book list after you use a search or filter, the books in the results will be included in the file.

Search for titles, authors or identifiers

To search your catalogue, click the search box at the top of the 'Book catalogue' page. Your search results will include all books that have an identifier, title or contributor that matches the search terms entered.

Searches aren't case-sensitive and include partial matches (e.g. searching for 'shake' will return books by Shakespeare).

You can also search specific fields by using the following prefixes. You can enter multiple keywords separated by spaces and your search results will include all books that match any of the search terms entered.

Field Example Description


title: 'Romeo and Juliet'

To search across your books' titles, enter the title before the keyword. If you want to search for a phrase, include it inside double quotation marks.

Enter a single ISBN or another book identifier in the search box to find the corresponding book. For identifiers that begin with 'GGKEY:', include the 'GGKEY' prefix.

If you include the optional prefix (i.e. ISBN:), identifier(s) not existing in your account will show up in red.
