Search McGill's Catalog (WorldCat)

The best place to look for books/ebooks available at the McGill Library is using the Library Catalogue:

Your search will cover most of McGill's collection of resources: books, journals, articles, and other resources, in both print or electronic format. Please be aware that not all articles we have access to can be found through WorldCat. If interested by articles, please use a database.
