WorldCat is an online catalog of over 43,000 libraries' holdings. Use it to find citations for items located at Ball State University Libraries (see the "Check CardCat" link within an item record) and in other library collections (see the "Request via interlibrary loan" link within an item record).

You can use WorldCat by going to the University Libraries homepage and scrolling down to Databases.  Choose "W" and it will be available alphabetically on the list.
