WorldCat Local

Use WorldCat to find books, journals, and other resources in both print or electronic format. Your search will cover most of McGill Library's collection of resources, including:

- the McGill Library catalogue
- a complete list of the library's online journals & databases
- reference materials, articles*, and e-books from various publishers and aggregators

*To find articles, I recommend using subject-specific databases and indexes; see resources listed under "Articles".

Inter-Library Loans

The Interlibrary Loan service (ILL) permits you to borrow documents that are not part of McGill Library’s collection. This service is offered exclusively to McGill professors, current students and staff as part of their teaching, learning, research and work activities at McGill University.

Requesting a document via interlibrary loan is done through Colombo, an online system used at all Québec universities.

Log in to Colombo to submit an ILL request.

Search Tips

The Basic Search is the default search for the McGill Library WorldCat homepage.

  • To search an exact phrase, use quotation marks; for example, "liberal party of canada".
  • To narrow a broad topic, use AND between keywords; for example, "elections" AND Canada.
  • To broaden a research topic, use OR to search for terms that denote similar concepts; for example, (voting OR elections AND Canada.
  • To retrieve search results for a word with multiple endings, use the root with an asterix; for example, vote* will retrieve research related to vote, votes, and voting.
