Finding Books & Ebooks

Search the WRLC Catalog to find books that we have here at Catholic University, online (e-books), and within the WRLC. If a book is located at another school in the WRLC, click on the post-it picture "Request through Consortium Loan Services" to have it sent here for your use.

If the book you want isn't available in the catalog you can submit an Interlibrary Loan request. Put the citation into the form or try searching for it in OCLC WorldCat
