Library Catalog & WorldCat

If you just want to see what we have on hand for books, the library catalog is your best bet. Click on the "Find Books" tab on the library home page, in the center there, and away you go. If however, you don't see enough books, or are they aren't quite what you wanted, you might try WorldCat. You can access that via the "Books" link over on the left hand side of the library page. What's the difference?

Well, the library catalog is more or  less what we own, mostly print or other materials here in the building, although we are getting more and more e-books. WorldCat on the other hand is a site with shared records from libraries all over, so even if we don't have, someone else probably does. If it is something we don't own, you can request it through inter-library loan. If you have any questions please ask one of us.
