WorldCat Discovery Search Box

WorldCat Discovery searches for books, media, and articles in our library and nationwide. 
Try ADVANCED SEARCH  for more options.

The A-Z list provides a complete list of the library's databases, which can be sorted by subject, item type, title, popular, or new additions.  This includes paper books, ebooks, digital and paper articles, but frankly, mostly digital and mostly full-text.

Covid Polices

  • Interlibrary Loan. For any items that we do not own, but you need for research, please fill out the ILL Request form that you see in the WorldCat search result for the item. Or email ill@lyon.edu with the bibliographic information on the item. Physical copies of books can be acquired for local faculty, staff and students. Only digital copies of articles can be acquired for non-locals. If retrieving a physical ILL item, we will allow your entrance to Anna’s office. Please return physical items to the book return in the breezeway.

  • Curbside pickup.  We are implementing curbside pickup and books can be ordered for pickup at askthelibrarian@lyon.edu.  We’ll notify you when they are on the cart which will be rolled into the breezeway.  They will already be checked out in your name and all you have to do is pick them up!

  • Returned books should be returned in the wall slot which is also in the breezeway entrance on the right when facing the library.

  • Use WorldCat Discovery to find most of what you'll need for your research needs.  It's the search box in the upper left corner!  If that doesn't work, try the A-Z blue box.
