WorldCat Quick Start
WorldCat Quick Start provides a quick and easy way to find books and other physical items when you are looking for information on a specific subject. This is a great way to explore the general availability of books on your topic. If you have checked the Library Catalog for a particular book or item and the library does not have it in the collection, search for it here and place an Interlibrary Loan request.
The Library Catalog can provide the definitive answer to the question "Does the library own a specific book (or other physical item)?" Generally, we suggest using WorldCat Quick Start to search for books or other physical items when you are not sure of the title for an exact item. If you discover that the library does not own a specific item, search for it in WorldCat and request the item via Interlibrary Loan.

Faculty members may request that the library supply photocopies of printed and microform library-owned material:
The faculty member must initiate the copy request in ILLiad
Only a single copy of an article, chapter of a book, poem, etc. will
be made (non-circulating materials only). This is in compliance with
the "Fair Use" doctrine of the U.S. Copyright Act of 1976.
The finished copies will be available online through ILLiad.
Faculty and Graduate Assistants (as proxy patrons) may borrow
journals to photocopy in their departments. If you have any questions
concerning this process, please contact a staff member in the
Circulation Department at x1461.
