Search libraries around the world including Columbia U. and New York Public Library. You may also find article citations with links to their full text; authoritative research materials, such as documents and photos of local or historic significance; and digital versions of rare items that aren't available to the public. Because WorldCat libraries serve diverse communities in dozens of countries, resources are available in many languages.
Some of features of OCLC WorldCat:
View search results more narrowly by specific author, format, publication year, language, etc., or find more materials with the same subject heading.
See a single master record for a work in the search results, then view all editions and formats available.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service through which eligible library users can obtain materials (books, articles, and more) from other libraries. Delivery turnaround time can vary. If you're in a rush, request just the chapter you need instead of the entire book. There is a one-chapter limit.
E-ZBorrow is a service that allows NYU users to search the combined catalogs of more than 50 research and academic libraries, and request books not available at NYU. E-ZBorrow is the fastest way to get a book not available from NYU Libraries.
