Searching other libraries catalogs

There are lots of library catalogs on the internet--but so what? You can search the catalog of a library in Timbuktu, but that doesn't get you the book. Remember that library catalogs do not have full text of books and documents but are just a database with descriptions of the library's holdings. There are a few, and will be more, actual online libraries where you can go to read or search full text documents. Just don't confuse these special resources with a library catalog, which is very different. See Reference Sources on the Web (p. 51) for links to online books.
