Gateway to Finding Books
UO WorldCat offers a streamlined interface in searching for books. It combines, into a single merged list, the collections of the UO Libraries, Summit libraries, and hundreds of other libraries worldwide.
To evaluate your books, use the Critical Evaluation of Information Sources guide.
- Your UO WorldCat list of results may contain materials in many formats. In the left hand column, in the Format section, click on Books to limit your results.
- In your list of results, entries for items owned by the UO Libraries appear at the top of the list. Click on the title to see information about location and availability. A Cite/Export link will also show you a citation for the book in MLA style.
