What is WorldCat Discovery?

    Shepherd WorldCat Discovery is a cloud-based application that helps library users find resources available at Scarborough Library and in libraries worldwide through a single search. Library users use their WorldCat Discovery instance to search the WorldCat database, to identify materials they need, and to see where they are available - at Scarborough Library or other libraries.
