One feature of Google Earth is a layer that consists of books that spread out over the world. Zoom in on the satellite image of an American city and concentric rings of small yellow books arrange themselves around it. Click on any of those yellow books and a bibliographic reference appears, letting you know that this city was mentioned in a certain digitized book or journal.
