WISCAT Cataloging

WISCAT Help and Documentation

The current edition of WISCAT is a web-based hybrid of a union catalog and a virtual Z39.50 catalog that provides the ability to search multiple library catalogs at the same time.

Libraries participating in resource sharing using WISCAT can create and submit interlibrary loan requests for items found searching WISCAT.  Subscribing libraries can download MARC records for use in their local online catalogs.
