Did you find an interesting old book in the New England Historic Genealogical Society online catalog? Before visiting the library in person always check to see if a digital copy is already online. Just cut and paste the title of the book into your favorite search engine. You may find the book is available on Google Books, the Internet Archive or other sites where out-of-copyright books have been scanned and digitized. This works for any library catalog, saves a trip to the library, and gives you instant access!
