You are thinking of refs which are out-of-copyright.
Google books only gives snippet views of some books still under copyright 
for which they've not gotten permission to show an entire page at a time 
(which is preview mode).

archive.org as well has copies of works out-of-copyright (or otherwise in 
the public domain)

Your original statement was that we should copy refs.  Many or most of our 
refs are under copyright still.
We would not be able to do what you suggest imho.
