Search Voilà, the group catalogue for Canadian libraries

What is Voilà?

Voilà is a free catalogue listing the holdings of libraries across Canada or worldwide. As a national catalogue, Voilà not only shows the published materials held at Library and Archives Canada (LAC), but also those located in libraries across Canada.

Voilà contains over 35 million records for books, magazines, newspapers, government documents, theses, sound recordings, maps and electronic texts, as well as items in braille and large print. Voilà is based on OCLC WorldCat Discovery, which is a cloud-based application that helps people easily find resources through a single search of WorldCat and authoritative e-content collections.
