WorldCat (World Catalog) is the world's largest online catalog; it includes books and other materials from libraries world-wide. From the NWC online catalog, there is a link to WorldCat (the second last tab on the right), and there is also a link on the A-Z Database list and on the library homepage under "Search & Find." Here is a link to instructions for searching WorldCat:

You may also search WorldCat from off-site:

Search WorldCat to identify items not held in the NWC Library. You may request an interlibrary loan for items you wish to obtain: Click on the Interlibrary Loan link on the library homepage under "Library Services" on the right-hand side of the page.  This will only work on-campus, and on web browsers other than Chrome.
