WorldCat: Books across the Nation

The WorldCat database includes the holdings (150 million publication titles) of most academic and research libraries in the United States, as well as many public and special libraries.  It also includes the holdings of selected research libraries around the world (especially in Europe).

Library Catalogs

"Library Catalogs" traditionally list "published volumes" only. In practice, this means they include the titles of a "bound volume," but usually not the individual articles or entries within a volume (like a journal or book).  Use them to search for:

  • Books
  • Government Documents
  • Media (videos, DVDs, CDs)
  • Theses and Dissertations
  • Maps, microfilm

For journals, "library catalogs" usually list the names and years (or volumes) owned by a library, but not the individual articles.
