 The people at the Virginia Community College System Libraries have been hard at work making our catalog a little better. 

VCCS has now added the WorldCat citation tool to each page in the catalog

At the bottom of each item’s page, underneath the Google Books search, you’ll find a WorldCat box.

 The box allows you to search for that book in other libraries (say, for example, if it is already checked out) as well as gives you a citation in the major formats.

Of course you’ll still need to make sure the citation is correct according to the format you are using. For help, see our Citing Sources section on our website, or ask a librarian for help.
