Classic Catalog

A lot, but not EVERYTHING.

Some formats (in particular, electronic books) are not being added to the "classic catalog." If you use the "classic catalog" you may be missing out on discovering some of our recent additions to WorldCat UMD.

It does include:

Books and other items at UMD and other universities in Maryland.

Some items are unique to the University of Maryland, such as special collections.

Search All NEW

Search All is a new discovery interface connecting library patrons to many of the University Libraries’ research tools including WorldCat UMD, Database Finder, Research Guides, FAQs, and the Libraries websiteResults from the different library tools are displayed in separate boxes, helping you better understand and navigate the search results. We welcome your feedback as we work to improve this tool. 

Search All displays results from:

  • WorldCat UMD to find books, scholarly articles, DVDs, and more. Article results are separated from the rest of the results, making it a bit easier to find what you need.
  • Database Finder to find relevant research databases
  • Research Guides to find material curated by our expert subject specialists to assist with subject-specific research
  • FAQs from Ask Us to find answers to questions related to library services
  • Libraries website to find information about UMD Libraries' spaces, programs, and services

We have also configured the tool to surface “best bet” results. If you search for a popular resource, the tool will highlight that result making it even easier to find.
