WorldCat is catalog of libraries worldwide and configured to search the collections of the Boston Library Consortium (BLC).

If a book is not available at BC you may locate it in WorldCat, put in a request for it, and have it at BC in 2-5 days. 

WorldCat can also be used for CDs, DVDs, microfilm, and other physical items.  Books and other materials can be requested if they are not owned by the Boston College Libraries or when they are checked out or otherwise unavailable.
