Google Book Search Releases API

Via Peter Brantley's listserv - apparently Google has released an API that allows developers to link directly to a book in the Google Book Search database. The link is a little touchy, but ultimately Google gives an example of their API at the Deschutes Public Library. In the words of the Google blog:

Web developers can use the Books Viewability API to quickly find out a book's viewability on Google Book Search and, in an automated fashion, embed a link to that book in Google Book Search on their own sites.
