WorldCat replaces Summon and the Classic Catalog

As a part of the Library’s migration to OCLC Worldshare Management Services (WMS), our old search interfaces, Summon and the Classic Catalog (Millennium), will no longer be in service as of May 31, 2016. Instead, the library would like to introduce OCLC’s search interface, WorldCat.

WorldCat LogoWorldCat allows you to search the library’s physical collection of books, journals, music, movies and newspapers, as well as eBooks, articles, eJournals, and other electronic resources; all from a single search box.

WorldCat offers researchers more specific searching, as well as access to a larger world of scholarship. Faculty and graduate students will be able to more easily place document delivery requests to books and other items held at libraries around the world.

Circulation staff and our Librarians will be happy to help you if you have any concerns or difficulties. You can contact the circulation desk by phone at 06 515 2256, or by email at As always, you can email or contact your liaison librarian for help finding resources or doing research.

If you experience any issues, please contact us at We would be happy to answer any questions you might have and would welcome your feedback.
