Library: What is WorldCat?

Discover over 1.5 billion resources in our library & libraries worldwide through a single search:

WorldCat [ ] is a catalogue of 72,000 libraries (including Redeemer's)  in countries around the world.  It is the world's largest library catalogue with millions of resources.  When you search the database, Redeemer's library holdings will appear first.  Items in other libraries can be requested through interlibrary loan. Remember to be selective though.  Many of the libraries on WorldCat are not academic libraries.  Books in public libraries are often selected for a general audience and would not be useful for a university level research paper.  For more information about interlibrary loans, see the Interlibrary Loans page under Services & Help (above).

(These numbers are from the summer of 2014. Go to  "Watch WorldCat Grow" to get the current total as records are added.)
