I don’t want to be the last one on the block to read/hear/see the latest. Now with these lists, I’m not. Give it a try.
See Oklahoma Authors/Topics, Staff Picks, and Librarian’s Professional Development lists too.
The inter-library ordering system will be offline.
Thursday, March 10th starting at 9 AM. We will update here when we are back up and operational.
Looks like all it well. Let me know if you have any trouble.

About WorldCat and Oklahoma Department of Libraries
Oklahoma Department of Libraries is dedicated to offering you access to the widest possible range of resources. You are now able to search our collection and the collections of many other libraries worldwide using WorldCat, the world’s largest network of library-based content and services.
Our collections come first
Although WorldCat has a global reach, you’ll always see information about our collections and links to our services up front. Everything you need is displayed right within the WorldCat record, including location and availability information for the item, and prominent button links to reserve or request an item or directly view electronic content such as the full text of an article.
You may also see special links to some of our online services just below the WorldCat record, preceded by the phrase “Services from Oklahoma Department of Libraries.” These links are relative to the displayed item, so the linked page will provide a service for the item you’re currently viewing.
We believe you’ll also find these features of the WorldCat interface useful:
- A “Refine Your Search” box that helps you narrow a large set of results
- A free WorldCat user account that allows you to create a personal profile; build private and public lists of library items; and contribute reviews and notes to WorldCat records
How to search
Use simple keywords as you would on a Web search site. Try using words from a title; the name of the author, artist or director; or words that describe the subject matter.
Learn more about searching (WorldCat FAQ)
Your search results will always be presented in this order:
- Resources owned by Oklahoma Department of Libraries;
- Resources available through our sharing relationships with other libraries, if your library belongs to a group;
- Resources owned by all other WorldCat libraries globally.
Results within each of these groups are ordered by relevance. Note that global WorldCat results may include many resources not owned by Oklahoma Department of Libraries. You may be able to obtain these items from a nearby library or through our resource-sharing network—click the “Request Item” button on the WorldCat record.
