WorldCat is a website that allows you to search for books, articles, e-books, and other items and see what libraries have access to those materials. It can be helpful for if there is a print book you'd like to access, but you're not near the Jerry Falwell Library or if we don't have the book. You can also use it to access in-depth bibliographic information. You can access WorldCat by going to the website: http://www.worldcat.org/ .
When searching WorldCat, follow the steps below:
- Begin at WorldCat. Type in the title or subject you're researching. Then search.
- Use the options on the left side of the page if you need to narrow down your search.
- Click on the title of an item to view more information about it.
- On the next page, you'll see bibliographic information at the top, including a Cite/Export link at the top of the page. Below this is a section that says Find a copy in the library.
- To see if a library near you has the item, type in your zip code and click Find libraries.
For additional information about using WorldCat, the JFL has created a short video tutorial.
