Copyright records on Google Books back to 1923

Big IP news:  You can now search and browse volumes of the Catalog of Copyright Entries covering 1923 through 1977 on Google Books.  That smartly compliments the online search posted by the U.S. Copyright Office (covering 1988 to the present) in the “Researching Registration Records” section of the Copyrights entry.  Using the Google Books search, I had no trouble finding the registration entry for Faulkner’s “As I Lay Dying” from 1930.  Nice!   {Huge thanks to Lucy Curci-Gonz​alez at Kenyon & Kenyon for letting me know about the Catalog on Google Books!}
