Check out Worldcat

The Books/Media tab on the WVU Libraries’ website search box is now searching a new system called Worldcat. This is the only place to find up-to-date availability for the Libraries’ print materials.

This is the first step toward a full rollout of Worldcat for finding books, articles, videos, journals, and more, which will take place after finals have ended. Worldcat will enable you to quickly search 1.9 billion items including electronic resources and print materials from a single search box. You will also be able to quickly determine what WVU Libraries own and seamlessly request materials through Interlibrary Loan for items we do not.

Mountainlynx and Summon no longer has up-to-date availability for print collections, and Mountainlynx will no longer be available beginning May 31.

For more information about these changes, please visit the Libraries website. If you have questions, please contact Jessica Tapia at
