Speaking of WorldCat...

As of right now, WorldCat (the main tool used to search UW Libraries and beyond) appears to be down. Oh no! How can anyone look up books?

Fear not, book seekers. Though WorldCat is down, you can still search for books using the trusty UW-only catalog.

There are many differences between WorldCat and our old UW-only catalog, but the major one is obvious from the titles: WorldCat searches the entire world (or almost) whereas the UW-only catalog just searches the books and journals we have here at UW.

So, while we're waiting on WorldCat to come back up, keep on searching using the old catalog. (Good thing we kept it around!)
