WorldCat.org is the world's largest network of library content and services and lets you search the collections of libraries in your community and thousands more around the world. Search the catalog to find a book, article, e-book, or other resource and then enter your location to find the closest library that owns it. If you are unable to visit or borrow from that library, try working with your public library to obtain the resource through Inter-library Loan (ILL) services.

Public Libraries

Library cards can be obtained for free from your local public library. Once you have a library card you will have access to a number of additional online and print resources through your local and state library systems. Search for books and journal issues not available at Kelly Library and either access them directly at your public library or make requests for books, A/V items, or articles through their Inter-library Loan (ILL) services. Please speak to someone at you local public library for more information.
