WORLDCAT- LOOKING FOR SOURCES BEYOND ASU

WorldCat is an interesting and useful resource, although it does not have any full text. It's a combined effort of thousands of libraries to catalog what they have: books, video, archival materials, and more. (It's not really intended to have articles, but it does record many.) One of my favorite uses is for finding theses and dissertations. Many of these are available online. I often go to WorldCat as the last thing I check, when I'm not finding anything or when I need to find everything on a topic. Try it yourself at worldcat.org

If these things are not at ASU, what good are they? You can request them through ILLiad from other libraries, but many of the things can be found online. 

In case you already know WorldCat, we no longer have the nice links for ILLiad requests and we no longer have the old Blue and White version of WorldCat.
