The online version of the World Atlas of Language Structures now 
includes a new features, allowing direct links from references to book 
pages. Currently this makes use of the Google book preview service. 
About 10% of WALS references are available in this way.

For example, to look at some of the pages that the WALS authors used for 
the information on Basque, go to 
http://wals.info/languoid/lect/wals_code_bsq and click on the "Google 
preview" button.

Some explanation is given here: http://blog.wals.info/links-to-google-books/

Thanks to Robert Forkel, Michael Cysouw and Hans-Jörg Bibiko for coming 
up with this very nice feature!
