What is WorldCat Local?

WorldCat Local (WCL) provides a single point of access and unifies a wide range of library print and digital content. WCL is also called a discovery tool, because it enables you to enter search terms and discover a wide range of content on your topic. For example, if  you need information on air pollution, a keyword search will result in listings of books, ebooks, full-text articles, or DVDs available to you in the Pearson Library, online databases, and other libraries.

WorldCat Local:

  • Shows you items owned by the Pearson Library and libraries worldwide.

  • Contains listings for books and for articles from a growing number of research databases.

  • Enables you to search by keyword or by known author or title.

This guide will give you an overview of how to use WorldCat Local. You can download or print a copy of the guide.

These brief tutorials will help you get started. View additional tutorials under Basic Search, Advanced Search, Retrieving Items and Course Reserves
