 Find Books in Other Libraries

Use ConnectNY, and WorldCat to find books in other libraries.

These databases use the same set of subject headings we use in our online catalog.  See the box on the left for suggested subject headings for your topics.  If you don't know what subject heading to use, try a keyword search first and follow subject headings for relevant books to find others on the same topic.

To get books you find in WorldCat that are not at Vassar or in ConnectNY, use ILLiad.
