WorldCat Transition

Where's UW WorldCat?


UW WorldCat will be replaced with a new interface called WorldCat. WorldCat will be a database for researchers to search worldwide beyond what is available at UW and through our Summit network.

To find materials at UW and through our Summit network, use UW Libraries Search.  UW Libraries Search is also accessible on the UW Engineering Library website (link on the top right of the page) and on the main UW Libraries site.

For more information about the WorldCat transition:
