Card Catalog for the Planet

Cool Tools just reviewed an amazing website that lets you search for books, articles, and other media in libraries around the world. WorldCat not only tells you which libraries have a particular book, but they also often link to that library's online catalog. In the case of Austin's public libraries, this means you can view the status of the book and which branch has it.

The site also has some other interesting features like reading lists, reviews, and links to buy on Amazon. Libraries are a great way to save money and prevent clutter. WorldCat should make it easier to find and read the books you want without buying them.
