Need to find a particular book in a hurry but can’t find it in the first library you check? Check a lot of local libraries with one quick search by going to! Just enter a title, subject, or person in the text box and you will be given a list of books and the libraries who own them. Localize your search by typing in a town and state, and not only will you see the libraries nearby who own that book, but clicking on the title will take you directly to that library’s own catalog so you can see the location and availability.  And it’s free. You can register on the site if you like but it isn’t required. How cool is that?

But wait, there’s more.  Item records now include a “Cite this Item” link that provides bibliographic citations in five common styles: APA, Chicago, Harvard, MLA and Turabian. Displayed in a separate pop-up window, the citations follow the reference standard for each style.
