UMass Boston Worldcat


WorldCat Discovery is a database that helps people easily find resources available at their library and in libraries worldwide through a single search. Library patrons use their WorldCat Discovery instance to search the WorldCat database, to identify materials they need, and to see where they are available.  Which means a person can search for a particular item on WorldCat and see all the libraries in their vicinity, and beyond, who carry it.

It contains records for over 74 million books and other items, such as articles, DVDs, journals, visual materials, musical scores - anything that a library has added to its catalog.

WorldCat at UMass Boston is customized to connect directly to UMB Interlibrary Loan log-on. Requesting books and articles from other libraries is much quicker and easier with WorldCat UMass Boston.
