New Library Catalog -- WorldCat
The library is in the process of
implementing a new catalog called WorldCat. New features
are being added daily, and final implementation is slated to
begin on Dec. 19.
As with our previous catalog, you can search for books, DVDs and
other items held by the Palomar College Library. New
features will also allow users to search for items owned at
regional and national libraries, as well as articles in the
library's research databases. Stay tuned for more information on
WorldCat as we migrate to this new system.
