WorldCat, the world's largest library catalog!

The Van Wylen Library doesn't have every book or resource, it just isn't feasible! But, luckily for you, you can request materials from other libraries through WorldCat.

Searching Tips

  • Try different groups of keywords to see what different kinds of results you get
  • From the results, click on a title that looks interesting; your search terms will show up in red.
  • Look for Subject headings in the records that match your topic
  • If you click on one of the subject headings links in a record, it will bring up a list of similar subjects that might also be helpful.


Subject Headings

When you see a library item in your search results that looks like it might be useful, go ahead and click on it to see the record for the item.  There you can look at its table of contents, its bibliographic information, AND, you can look at its Subject Headings.


Subject Headings are like "tags' that describe what the book/resource is about.  You can use these "tags" as links to find other resources that have that same "tag."undefined
