Introduction to WorldCat

WorldCat can be searched to discover most material housed in the Hekman Library collections. The search page offers more sophicated search options than the Library Catalog. However, the Library Catalog searches everything owned by the library, while WorldCat does not.

  • WorldCat contains nearly 100% of the material in the main collection (books and journal titles).
  • Some Hekman Library collections are not represented in WorldCat
  • WorldCat is better for searching exact titles
