What is WorldCat?

UC Denver Health Sciences Library is dedicated to offering you access to the widest possible range of resources. You are now able to search our collection and the collections of many other libraries worldwide using WorldCat, the world's largest network of library-based content and services.

Our collections come first

Although WorldCat has a global reach, you'll always see information about our collections and links to our services up front. Everything you need is displayed right within the WorldCat record, including location and availability information for the item, and prominent button links to reserve or request an item or directly view electronic content such as the full text of an article.

You may also see special links to some of our online services just below the WorldCat record, preceded by the phrase "Services from UC Denver Health Sciences Library." These links are relative to the displayed item, so the linked page will provide a service for the item you're currently viewing.

We believe you'll also find these features of the WorldCat interface useful:

A "Refine Your Search" box that helps you narrow a large set of results

A free WorldCat user account that allows you to create a personal profile; build private and public lists of library items; and contribute reviews and notes to WorldCat records
