Regional Catalogs -- Your Next Choice after checking our SJU Catalog
Use this self-service system for borrowing books from the libraries of over 60 colleges/universities across PA and neighboring states. Saint Joseph's students, faculty and staff may search the virtual catalog and directly request:
- books that we do not own
- books currently checked out or otherwise unavailable at Saint Joseph's Libraries.
- Note: No journals or journal articles may be requested
WorldCat (via OCLC's FirstSearch interface) is a cooperative database of bibliographic records contributed by 60,000 libraries. More than 100 million global information sources in all formats—books, full text, electronic books and journals, Web-based articles, and audio and video recordings.
Although this database can show records from around the world, our implementation is set up to clearly specify when a resource is available from SJU (as well as other regional academic institutions). When a resource is not available at SJU or a nearby college/university, you can always submit a request for an Interlibrary Loan.
We always suggest using our local and regional catalogs first. But if you need to go beyond:
