What is WorldCat Local?
WorldCat Local is "a way for you to locate books, articles, journals, videos and other items of interest in your library or other libraries." [Source http://www.oclc.org/support/help/worldcat/ApplicationHelp.htm]
WorldCat is unique in that it can tell you if an information resource is available at a Library anywhere in the world.
Why should I use WorldCat Local?
You'll find popular books, music CDs and videos—all of the physical items you're used to getting from libraries and bookstores. You can also discover many new kinds of digital content, such as downloadable audiobooks.
You may also find citations for articles with links to the full articles, plus authoritative research materials, such as documents and photos of local or historic significance; and digital versions of rare items that aren't available to the public. Because WorldCat libraries serve diverse communities in dozens of countries, materials are available in many languages. [Source: http://www.oclc.org/support/help/worldcat/ApplicationHelp.htm]
