WorldCat allows researchers to search the catalogs of many other libraries. Books not available at CSU Stanislaus or through Link + must be requested through the CSU Stanislaus Interlibrary Loan services.

The library catalog, the Link + catalog and WorldCat all have advanced search options in order to search for materials in languages other than English.
