Finding Books Beyond the Library Catalog
The Hesburgh Libraries of Notre Dame currently contain approximately 3.1 million volumes - a mere fraction of what is available. In order to access what is not found here the Libraries have an excellent InterLibrary Loan department and subscribe to WorldCat - a catalog of over 9000 libraries worldwide. All graduate students and advanced undergraduates should be searching for books via WorldCat.
Keyword is the easiest and most flexible way to search WorldCat. It searches words in all fields of the catalog record: title, author, publisher, notes, etc. However, you will want to be a bit more specific than you have in the standard library catalog as their are many more resources. WorldCat will show you which items can be found at Notre Dame and which will need to be ordered through ILL.
Tip: combine your keywords from your diagram to create a more effective search. Example: Gehry and Los Angeles.
