WorldCat Database

Use WorldCat to simultaneously search for titles in our K-State Libraries collections and holdings from other libraries available through Interlibrary Loan.

WorldCat search box


The WorldCat database can help you to discover where your topic is mentioned within a book -- many records include the table of contents.

We highly recommend the "Advanced Search" option -- it allows for much greater control when searching. 


If we have the title, you will see the phrase K-State Libraries highlighted in green on the record.

WorldCat search result


Click on the title to open the record and click on the "Get It" button or use Search It to retrieve the call number and location.  Some titles might also be available electronically via Search It.

If we do not have the title, you will not see K-State Libraries highlighted in green.

You can request that we borrow the book from another library. Click on the title to get to the complete record and then click on the "Get It" button  and select "Not available? Request from Interlibrary Loan" to place an Interlibrary Loan request.
