Catalogs of Other Libraries
A catalog is the record of the holdings of an individual library (such as Quick Search on the Library homepage) or multiple libraries.
WorldCat is a single, user-friendly database that includes catalog records from more than 33,000 libraries worldwide. It also offers a direct link to interlibrary loan (ILL) service. When you identify an item you would like to borrow, you can initiate a loan request by clicking the "ILL" button at the top of the page.
