These databases allow keyword searching as well as searching by author, title, and subject, just as you can do in Vassar's online catalog. They use the same set of subject headings we use in our online catalog. You may limit your searches by language, time period, etc.
If you search WorldCat and find books you want that are available through ConnectNY, you must search the ConnectNY catalog and order the books from ConnectNY. To get books you find in WorldCat that are not at Vassar or in ConnectNY, use ILLiad.
