Web LOL: Library Of Links Impractical Proposals


Search: worldwide virtual library catalogue

WorldCat call itself the world's largest network of library content and services. Linked to libraries that are committed to providing access to their resources on line, enables searching of the collections of book repositories around the world:
* Search many libraries at once for an item and then locate it in a library nearby to borrow it
* Find books, music, and videos to check out
* Find research articles and digital items (like audiobooks) that can be directly viewed or downloaded
* Link to "Ask a Librarian" and other library services
* Post your review of an item, or contribute factual information about it
You may need to have an active offline membership with some libraries to view/download content or check out materials by downloading.

Illustration: Click on WorldCat icons to search for books, music CDs and videos -- all of the physical items you're used to getting from libraries. You can also discover many new kinds of digital content, such as downloadable audiobooks. 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 physically available to the public. Resources are available in many languages.
