A look at one of the better gifts of modern technology. (cover of Encyclopedia of the Harlem Renaissance)

For the first time since the publication of Encyclopedia of the Harlem Renaissance (Facts On File) in 2003, Google Books has recently added an extended preview to its listing of the title.

The preview includes a full-screen color reproduction of the cover, which features artwork by celebrated artist Jacob Lawrence, the foreword and authors’ notes, and free access to more than 100 pages of articles ranging from profiles of Chicago Defender editor Robert Abbott and the Abyssinian Baptist Church to Broadway star and social activist Sophie Tucker. Access is also available to a list of encyclopedia topics and a comprehensive appendix of maps detailing such subjects as the Great Migration, the development of black music, and the Harlem Renaissance’s influence around the world.

In addition to providing access to the generous preview itself, Google has also made available a preview widget that may be embedded in a blog or on a website. You can obtain the widget simply by clicking on the “link” icon in the upper right corner of the page for Encyclopedia of the Harlem Renaissance and copying the code labeled “embed.” Once you’ve copied the code, paste and save it in your blog or on your website. The widget is ideal for educators and readers addressing subjects associated with the Harlem Renaissance/Jazz Age, American history in general, or examples of award-winning work by contemporary authors.

Google Books has made widgets available for the following titles as well:

ELEMENTAL the Power of Illuminated Love
The Wisdom of W.E.B. Du Bois
The American Poet Who Went Home Again
I Made My Boy Out of Poetry
Christmas When Music Almost Killed the World

Each of these serves as great introductions to the books themselves and makes a great addition to literary and education websites. If you happen to be an author yourself, you might consider checking the availability of widgets for your own books and adding them to your author profiles.
