Find Books beyond QCC & CUNY

Worldcat is a catalog (or database) of materials held by thousands of libraries around the world, including QCC and other CUNY libraries. Worldcat is free to search by anyone with an internet connection. It's a great tool for identifying items, most often books and other physical materials, relevant to your research that are not included in QCC or other CUNY collections.

Items found beyond the CUNY system can requested through Interlibrary Loan (see information to left)
