WorldCat Discovery Services

Ready to order?

FirstSearch/WorldCat Discovery subscriptions are based on FTE or community served, with the goal of having a subscription that is within reach for every size and type of library. You can subscribe as an individual library or through a group purchase made on your library's behalf.

Current subscribers

An existing FirstSearch/WorldCat Discovery subscription enables use of both the WorldCat Discovery and FirstSearch interfaces (including access to the WorldCat Discovery central index).

New orders

New WorldCat Discovery (premium) subscriptions include features previously sold as WorldCat Discovery options (item location and real-time availability, group views, remote database search and course reserves/reading lists). Request a quote to start a new subscription or update a lapsed subscription.  

WorldCat Discovery helps people easily find and get resources available at your library and in libraries worldwide through a single search of WorldCat and familiar, authoritative e-content collections. It also connects users to your collections via popular websites where people typically start their research.
