General and Multi-Library Catalogues


COPAC is a multi-library catalogue showing the combined holdings of many of the UK's research libraries, and is a good starting place to search for items not held by UCL.
It is also a key tool for checking whether items are available in the London area, before Taught Postgraduate and Final Year Undergraduate applications are made to use the British Library.

MASC25 - Mapping Access to Special Collections in the London Region
