WorldCat: Searching Other Libraries' Catalogs

If the UALR Ottenheimer Library does not have the books you need, it is possible to search libraries across the country for books of interest using WorldCat, also known in the library world as OCLC.

Materials found in WorldCat can be requested via Interlibrary Loan. Not every book in the database can be obtained from another library, but it is worth the attempt. The success rate is very good. Just do not wait until the last minute. It can take up to 10 business days for materials to be shipped from the loaning library.
