Using Google Earth in Libraries (A Practical Guide for Librarians) (ISBN: 978-1442255043, 122 pp., $65), by Eva H. Dodsworth and Andrew Nicholson, demonstrates how Google Earth has been used as a resource for research. It features library path finders, discovery tools, and collections built with the program. The book also contains information on how Google Earth can be embedded into library services. There is an introduction to features and data and map-making capabilities. It is a guide for all types of libraries and levels of use from elementary school through adult. According to the publisher's website, although there have been articles on different aspects of Google Earth, this is the first book published that comprehensively explains how to use it for library-related purposes.
