What is the search engine called that locates books at other libraries?

BorrowDirect allows Harvard students, faculty and staff to request items from partner libraries for delivery to Harvard, free of charge.

Search the BorrowDirect catalog and request items. (HarvardKey required)

When you cannot find an item in HOLLIS or BorrowDirect, try WorldCat (HarvardKey required).  WorldCat is an online catalog for thousands of libraries both in the Boston area and worldwide.
