    This seems to have merit with various review links and other publisher information. I was a bit confused by the two sign in/log in options on the top and only really found a link to World Cat by doing a site search. I thought there may be a link to it under books, libraries or even from the OPAC. I did find it though in under books in the Database section.
    I created an account and made a short list of recent tennis books: tennisfavs limiting it to NPL.

      Thanks for the feedback. Agreed – it is sort of buried on the web site. It has not been optimized to be as useful as the two existing library catalogs, so it is more of an experiment at this point.

    It is not easy to find on our website. I created an account and a short list of fiction books that I enjoyed reading. Now that I know more about Worldcat, I plan on using it more.
