Looking for an easy way to find books and journals owned not only by MIT, but also by other libraries around the world? Try MIT Libraries’ WorldCat, an experimental interface to the Barton catalog.

Other features include:

  • easy browsing capabilities, with images of book covers and many Google book previews
  • option to set up a user profile, so you can save your favorite items to sharable lists
  • ability to tag, rate, and review items

For a full list of features, read About MIT Libraries’ WorldCat.

WorldCat doesn’t include everything owned by the MIT Libraries, so if you can’t find what you’re looking for, make sure to check Barton and Vera, or ask us!
