Even when the full text of a book wasn't available, it would take catalog entries (Meta Data) from every library and publisher and random Internet user who is willing to donate them. It would link to places where each book could be bought, borrowed, or downloaded. It would collect reviews and references and discussions and every other piece of data about the book it could get its hands on.

a giant Structured Wiki containing EBook-s?
