Presentation: WorldCat

WorldCat.org is a great resource for locating unique, trustworthy materials that you often can't find anywhere except in a library.  And by connecting thousands of libraries' collections in one place, WorldCar.org makes it easy for you to browse the world's libraries from one easy search box.

During the past 50+ years, thousands of libraries have entered information about millions of books, magazine, movies, songs, maps, genealogical records, research theses and so much more into WorldCat.  And not just the physical items you could find when you visit a library, but many kinds of digital content like open-soure e-books, articles, downloadable audiobooks, and photos.  You can find article citations with links to full text, authoritative research materials, one-of-a-kind documents, and photos of local or historic significance, and digital versions of rare items are aren't generally available to the public.

Presenter: Curt Witcher

Curt Witcher is truly passionate about local history and helping people find their stories.  Currently the manager of the Genealogy Center of the Allen County Public Library, Fort Wayne, Indiana, Curt says, "I just get excited about helping others find their families' stories."
