Need a book or journal
the library does not own? There is a database you can search to find which
library in the area, or in the US, owns a specific title. WorldCat contains
the merged catalogs of libraries around the world, making it the world's
largest and richest database of bibliographic information. WorldCat houses
over 49 million bibliographic records, with each record listing libraries
that hold the item.
Perhaps you’ve read a review in JAMA and might like to read the book, Science and Pseudoscience in Clinical Psychology (reviewed in JAMA July 2, 2003, p. 269). Search the title in WorldCat.
Here’s another example where you may have read about this book and wonder how to see a copy. Hunting the 1918 Flu, One Scientist’s Search for a Killer Virus by Kirsty Duncan. Notice the line which says Univ of Conn Health Center! We own this book.
If you click on See more details for locating this item, you will be able to transfer this search to our catalog and find the location and status of the book. Click on the library icon at the end of the title.
Choose the first title held in 701 libraries. You’ll find many local sources for reading the article.
Watch for more news about WorldCat soon. Library staff are working on making it possible for you to link directly into an interlibrary loan form when you have located material you need which we do not have.
