WorldCat Discovery manual

What is WorldCat Discovery?

WorldCat Discovery contains information about items that are held by thousands of libraries worldwide, including the Tilburg University library.

For students and faculty of Tilburg University the primary resource in WorldCat Discovery is our own library catalog, which: 

  • lists all of the items available from the TiU library regardless of format: books, journals, multimedia, etc. are all included;
  • tells you where to find these items;
  • tells you whether a particular item can be checked out and whether it is currently available;
  • links to available full-text articles and e-books;
  • includes an option to submit an ‘interlibrary loan’ request for items the library does not own.
