Finding Books on or by Delaware

Subjects in DELCAT:

Entries may be displayed under "Del." in an alphabetical list. In some cases, the word "Delaware" may not appear in the record; keyword searching will not retrieve these publications. Always supplement  keyword search with a Browse by Subject in DELCAT.


  • New Castle County (Del.)
  • Newark (Del.)

State Agencies in Authors and Subjects in DELCAT:

For Delaware state agencies, the abbreviation "dept." often appears instead of the word "Department."


  • Delaware. Dept. of Correction

If there are questions about the name of a Delaware agency, see the list Agency Histories or ask at the Reference Desk.


In WorldCat Local, both "dept." and "Department" will be retrieved in a search for either one.


Delaware Documentation Collection

"Delaware Documentation" was a distribution program to provide libraries with publications from Delaware agencies and related organizations. The publications were distributed in microfiche,  received directly from the Delaware Public Archives. The program ceased in 2002.

The Delaware Documentation ("Del Doc") microfiche collection is in the Microforms Area on the Lower Level, Microfiche S 72. Note: These publications are NOT listed in DELCAT.

Indexing of the collection is provided by a series of checklists.

For more information, contact Rebecca Knight or contact the Delaware Public Archives.
