Finding Books

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. After you find the book click on "Request this item through ILL".

Google Books

Google Book Search works just like web search. Try a search on Google Books or on When Google Books finds a book with content that contains a match for your search terms, they'll link to it in your search results. Google Books has created reference pages for every book so you can quickly find all kinds of relevant information: book reviews, web references, maps and more.
