Note – Not all books are included in Open WorldCat. Many archival and genealogy materials and books do not have ISBNs. This source is useful but be aware of the limitations.
National Union Catalog of Manuscript Collections (NUCMC)
This collection is similar to WorldCat in so much as it provides bibliographic database of many different archives (currently over 700 thousand entries). The Library of Congress sponsors this web site. The main difference between the two is NUCMC lists only manuscripts – those materials that have never been published. In many cases these can be one-of-a-kind sources in nature. Their subject matter does not necessarily tie them to a related facility.
This site is available at – www.loc.gov/coll/nucmc. There are three different ways to search the RLG Union Catalog. Easy search (word list) will look for the search terms in order of name, title, and subject fields, as well as Advanced and Boolean searches. Like WorldCat, searching for materials under surnames, locations, organizations, etc can be performed.
Each search has a link to more on this record. Clicking on it gives you the full catalog entry, including the location of the material. Some records are brief, while others go on for a page or more
