      "I like that WorldCat gives me information like the publisher and author's name right when I search for the item I am trying to write about. It also lets you know where to find the information online and in person which is great because many libraries have this information but it is very confusing and this isn't."

      "WorldCat is an interesting tool that attempts to aggregate library data into one easy to use portal. This results in a fantastic tool for writing a research paper as not only can you reserve books for you to pick up, you can even see many of the books online."

It is a one source stop to a multitude of various sources. I would have loved to use this to write my public speech on the affects of various viruses that contribute to cancer.
