Library Catalogs & Directories

Below are some starting points for searching or locating catalogs for libraries around the world.  If you need help finding a library catalog for a specific institution abroad, please contact a librarian.


Below are some resources to help you identify collections in major archives in countries around the world. Many smaller archives may not have searchable finding aids or guides, or may have very limited information about collections on their website. Occasionally, there are print bibliographies or guides listing collections in specific archives. You can search for these in the Library Catalog or WorldCat. You may have to reach out to the archive directly for more information. We're happy to help!
