If you don't find what you need in MSJC's collection you can search the catalogs of other libraries and then request that those titles (up to five) be sent to you here at MVC. There is a $2.00 charge per item for this service. Make sure you give yourself enough time because it can take up to two weeks for the books to get here.
What is WorldCat? WorldCat is a huge online catalog that allows you to search the MSJC catalogs and catalogs of libraries around the world all at the same time. Using Worldcat gives you access to over 1.5 Billion item records. By using WorldCat you can find resources not owned by our library and request them through Interlibrary Loan. This is particularly helpful when doing research on subjects that may have limited resources.
This approximately 8 minute tutorial shows how to use Worldcat's Advanced Search screen. Content includes command line searching, Boolean operators, wildcards, truncation and more.
