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