This is an example record from the public WorldCat. If you are off-campus, you will not see the "Connected to the University of South Alabama" box which means you will not be able to link into our resources automatically. I recommend that you use the subscription WorldCat from off-campus.

Google Books

Google Books allows you to search the full text of some books. Many will be under copyright and you won't be able to see the full text, but you can then search SOUTHcat or WorldCat to see if you can obtain a copy. Public domain titles will often be available in the full text.
