Searching Tips

  • Try different groups of keywords to see what different kinds of results you get
  • From the results, click on a title that looks interesting; your search terms will show up in red.
  • Look for Subject headings in the record that match your topic and try searching under these as a subject search.
  • If you click on one of the subject headings links in a record, it will bring up a list of similar subjects that might also be helpful.
  • Not finding many books on your topic? After trying a search, look for the     button to do the same search in WorldCat, a shared catalog of libraries around the world. We can order many of these items for you through InterLibrary Loan.

Browsing Subject Headings

Sometimes it can be useful to simply browse through a list of Subject Headings that relate to your topic.  This can give you ideas for keywords or subject headings to search, or even give you an idea on a topic to select.
