There has been an update to our discovery system, WorldCat, which allows you to browse the books on the shelf right from your search results.
See which books of interest lie on either side of your selected item by clicking on the title of the book to open the detailed display. The second expandable section is called “Browse the Shelf,” clicking to expand it will display the item’s neighbours on the shelf. As our shelves are arranged using the Library of Congress call number system, the neighbours will have similar, or even identical, topics.
In the screenshot below, the items on either side of Byron Augustin’s “United Arab Emirates” are “The United Arab Emirates: dynamics of state formation” and “The North-East Shaikhdoms: an Arabian album.”
