Emory's printed materials (books, pamphlets, journals, newspapers, etc.) are cataloged in discoverE. This is a common practice, and most libraries contribute their records to larger consortium catalogs, like WorldCat.

A catalog record is to a printed item as a finding aid is to a manuscipt collection. In special collections libraries catalog records give more information then just the call number.
