WorldCat (AKA FirstSearch, OCLC)
WorldCat is an international catalog of books, videos, serials, recorded books and music, maps, sheet music, digital objects, etc. This is the tool used by McFarlin Library to fill many of your InterLibrary Loan requests.
Some hints for using WorldCat effectively
Use the dropdown menu for other search categories
Investigate the other limiters to help reduce the chances of returning hundreds of results. Remember that not every record is coded as accurately as you might want it to be.
The subtype limits
Rank by: the default is for number of libraries owning the title. You can also choose to rank by date which puts the newest items on top.
Once you receive your search results, you have several limit methods to refine the search. See the limit button on the gray line.
Titles owned by both McFarlin Library and the Mabee Legal Information Center (AKA the law library) have a little icon by each entry.
If you find the perfect bibliographic citation but our logo isn't there, please click on the "Search for versions with the same title and author" link. We may have the title you want but from a different publisher or different printing year.
