WorldCat Lists: Showcasing UB Authors and Langsdale Collections

If you missed the Faculty Authors celebration held at Langsdale on October 23 (or even if you didn't), you can browse a list of books authored by UB faculty and available at Langsdale by going to WorldCat Lists.

WorldCat is the name of the software behind the catalog accessed by clicking on the "Books" tab on Langsdale's web site. In addition to the "traditional" catalog function of locating books and DVD's held by Langsdale and other libraries, WorldCat offers the option of creating local lists of materials. To showcase UB authors and some commonly sought-after materials in Langsdale's collection, we have created lists of the following:

  • UB Faculty Authors
  • UB Alumni Authors
  • UB Fraud Library
  • UB Leisure Reading
  • UB Games
  • UB DVDs

Each WorldCat List can hold only 500 titles, so unfortunately we couldn't have a single list of all our DVDs. You'll find those lists subdivided by date.

You can find all the Langsdale lists here.

If you would like to see a list we haven't thought of, suggestions are welcome. Contact Betty Landesman, Head of Technical Services and Content Management at Langsdale Library, 410-837-4204, blandesman@ubalt.edu.
