As part of the transition to a new Library Search tool, library access to Worldcat Local ends as of July 1, 2015. The new Library Search tool will be available on July 23.

There are several library databases that can be used to perform tasks that you may have done with Worldcat Local.

  • Search for books and movies at Loyola¬† – for the rest of July, you can search for books, movies, and other physical material in the Loyola Libraries by using the Pegasus catalog.
  • Search for books at other libraries – You can search for books that we don’t have here at Loyola with the Worldcat Firstsearch database. This version of Worldcat does not search journal articles, like Worldcat Local does, but it does search library catalogs around the world. You can also initiate interlibrary loan requests for specific books when you search for them in Worldcat Firstsearch.
  • Search for journal articles – The library subscribes to hundreds of article databases that cover different areas of research. You can choose the best database for your research area from our Research Guides, or use Academic Search Complete, which is a general article database that covers all disciplines.
