New library search option: Worldcat Discovery

On Thursday, March 24, the library will launch a new search tool on our home page called Worldcat Discovery.

Worldcat Discovery helps our users quickly start a search for books and articles without knowing all the research databases and catalogs the library offers. Once you search, you can quickly narrow results to the type of material you want. Other benefits include:

  • Perform one search to find a variety of materials and formats, instead of searching the catalog and article databases separately.
  • Use it to request books and other materials from CTW or other colleges and universities.
  • In many cases, you can reach the full text of an article directly from Worldcat Discovery.
  • Easy options to copy or send a formatted citation.

The traditional catalog search and separate research databases are all still available.

Access Worldcat Discovery from the library home page, or by visiting
