WorldCat Discovery is a powerful tool for searching library holdings and databases together. During the COVID-19 closure of ours and many other libraries, the need to access eBooks and other online sources is great. A large and growing number of publishers have temporarily made their content freely available, and most of these are accessible on this platform.
