WorldCat is an international library catalog that allows its users to find books and other materials all over the world. Paired with Interlibrary Loan, libraries can expand their collections and serve their patrons without having to take funding from other areas.

We do not borrow or lend material internationally, but we do borrow and lend throughout the United States. The only exception is for article requests. Articles are transferred through a cloud platform.

Accessing WorldCat Databases

The databases are located on the Electronic Resources page under “W”. To use the databases from off-campus, you will be asked to log in with your OPSU credentials.
