Finding Books: Library Catalogs

Use the following library catalogs to locate a book.

Helpful Hints for...

Subject Searching: try Library of Congress Subject Headings, the terms used by most U.S. academic libraries to describe the main subjects of books. Subject searching on perfectly natural words and phrases may give lower or zero results if not the "official" terminology.  


When you discover useful resources from a keyword search: a glance at actual subject headings in the catalog record for books use gives suggestions of both the "official" subject term and new directions to try.
