What is WorldCat Discovery?

WorldCat Discovery (WCD) searches the holdings of thousands of libraries worldwide, including those of the TiU library.

For TiU students and stafff the primary resource in WorldCat Discovery is our own library catalog, which: 

  • searches books and other psysical materials held in by TiU library; 
  • tells you where to find these items;
  • tells you whether a particular item can be checked out and whether it's 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.

WorldCat Discovery searches some of the online databases to which the TiU library subscribes. Those databases not searched by WCD must be accessed separately from our All databases A to Z page.
