Beyond cataLION

If you cannot locate what you need in the cataLION, try these other catalogs to find materials in other libraries, which can be interlibrary loaned.

Another source for locating books is a database called WorldCat. This is a catalog for thousands of libraries. Use this if you cannot find enough books at Albright. [Probably not necessary for this class].

Library staff will do everything possible to get your materials to you in a timely fashion. Click the Getting Your Materials tab above for instructions.
