WorldCat is our library catalogue and discovery tool. It allows you to search across all BGU library holdings at the same time, including the physical resources held in the Library and many of the databases we provide access to. You can also use it to search the collections of other libraries that use WorldCat.
For printed resources, WorldCat shows how many copies we have and where to look for them. Online materials can be immediately opened and viewed onscreen.
You also use WorldCat to login and monitor your library account, renew loans and place and monitor holds. Additional features include the ability to create lists of and add tags to resources.
If you regularly study off-campus, or use search tools like Google Scholar, we recommend you download LibKey Nomad (click here for installation instructions). LibKey Nomad is a browser extension that displays an onscreen alert when you find an article that the Library provides access to, thus removing the need to separately check WorldCat.
