What is a WorldCat account?

A WorldCat account is different from a borrower's account. For information on your Tyndale Library borrower's account please visit the Your Library Account page

A WorldCat account enables you to do the following:

  • Create lists and bibliographies of resources that you can save and share with others
  • Find other lists and bibliographies that you can follow
  • Save searches that you can go back to at a later time
  • Create works cited lists in one of the major citation formats used at Tyndale
  • Review saved items, add tags to saved items, and set up your favorite libraries
  • Create your own tags for items

In order to take advantage of these features you will first need to set up a free WorldCat account. This account is available to you in any version version of worldcat.org even when you are searching another WorldCat library.

Setting up your free WorldCat account

You can set up your WorldCat account through the Tyndale WorldCat. To do so, take the following steps:

  1. On the Tyndale Library page (www.tyndale.ca/library) click on the WorldCat tab
  2. Click the Advanced Search link

  4. Click on the Create an account now link in the New Account section of the page
  5. Fill out the form and click the I agree link at the bottom of the page
  6. WorldCat will automatically sign you into your account.
