1. A WorldCat search will inform on the availability of books from libraries worldwide, including Regent University Library. Should you find that we have the book, WorldCat will link to the record in our library catalog.

If we don't have the title, WorldCat will inform on other libraries that have the title - maybe one close to you!

2. WorldCat also simplies your interlibrary loan (ILL) submission. You'll see an icon for ILLiad. Clicking on it will automatically populate all the data needed for your book request.

3. Cite this item - clicking on the icon takes you to our library to access our cite tool

How do I access WorldCat? Alphabetically from the library's full database list

Here is a short tutorial explaining how to create a request through WorldCat

Don't rule out checking with a library near you to see if they have the book. It can save you time and be more convenient (you don't have to return the book to Regent or pay for the return).
