Portland State Worldcat, which offers a combined search of the items owned by the Portland State Library, regional libraries (Summit), and libraries worldwide. You can now easily search more than 100 million items from libraries around the world. The Library's in-house catalog, VIKAT, will remain available to provide additional search capability. What is Portland State Worldcat? With Portland State Worldcat, you can simultaneously search the Portland State Library, Summit libraries(30+ libraries in Oregon and Washington) and WorldCat (a catalog of libraries worldwide, which also includes thousands of journal articles). The system is designed to display items available at Portland State first, followed by those held in Summit libraries. If an item isn't available from Portland State or a Summit library, you will see results from WorldCat, which can be requested via Interlibrary Loan.
