GLOBEPORTAL - World Catalog Window  

GLOBEPORTAL is a collection of key World catalog metasites and smaller catalog sites to allow you comprehensive access to online library, museum, archive and special collections catalogs necessary for your research. While none of them is a metacatalog of the scope of First Search's "Worldcat", they will collectively take the researcher with patience and good instincts beyond Worldcat's OCLC database limits. Some are web-based, some are telnet based. The well-planned Berkeley Sunsite Catalog Portal has an understandable anchor position. We have supplemented where we found this resource lacking, where another resource presented a particularly useful arrangement of catalogs, or where a special feature of a particular catalog offered a desirable and effective advanced search feature. Since Firstsearch is a component of UTMartin's subscription databases, I include a link to these databases (accessible to UTMartin computers online and to those using remote access UTMartin accounts). The last section is our portal to significantly large, general and mostly free-access virtual libraries, which catalog web and database resources.
