Hot tip: For a nice demonstration of the powerful result set filtering options, try this search against LCCurrentZ:

In the result set, click Get All and load about 1000 records into memory. Click Cancel to stop loading or let it finish loading all 16,000 records.

Start typing something into the Filter box. Watch what happens as you type each character. How's that for refining a result set!

You can also search other Z39.50 databases, such as OCLC, large public libraries, or universities. Learn more.
