Great Blog Post By Dick Eastman About Using WorldCat, A Popular Library Research Resource, To Help You Find Genealogy Books

Hi Everyone!

I just came across a wonderful September 17, 2012 posting at Dick Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter blog that I really wanted to make you aware of.

The posting focuses on describing the wonderful library research resource called WorldCat.

Genealogists should have this resource foremost in their minds when they are trying to hunt down book, or other media material, that exists in libraries throughout the world.  If you know a book exists you can use WorldCat to discover what libraries have the book in their collection.  You may discover the resource is available to you in local public library that you can get to quickly to see if the book can help you.

The article by Dick Eastman is very extensive and very informative.

So in this blog post, I am not going to include the full-text of the post.  Instead, I am going to provide you with a direct link to the Dick Eastman posting of the information.

You can’t go wrong with WorldCat.

Keep this genealogy resource right at your fingertips when you are trying to search for book material outside of your own libraries individual catalog.

Here is a direct link to Dick Eastman’s article on WorldCat:
