Finding Books in DELCAT

What is DELCAT?

You could think of DELCAT as the inventory of everything the library owns. Like inventory records, bibliographic records in DELCAT provide detailed information about library resources. DELCAT includes information about all books, journals, media, rare books and other materials owned by the University of Delaware Library.

Currently, DELCAT contains bibliographic records for more than 2.4 million items.
