Find Books in Our Library
Start by searching our Library Online Catalog by keyword.
Put one keyword in each search box. If you don't find much, try synonyms of the word(s) you are using, and try just one or two words in your searches. When you find a book you like, be sure to write down the entire call number to find it on our shelves.
Also Try These Clickable Subject Headings for Books
Subject Headings in the catalog are an easy way to drill down to the exact subject area you need for your book sources. Listed here are GENERAL subjects, but click on one, and a new page will open. If you then scroll down, you can see how the Subjects are broken down specifically.
- Click on a Library of Congress Subject Heading below to browse what titles we have under each of these subjects.
- This is not meant to be an inclusive list of all countries!
- If you would like to conduct your own Subject Heading search, type in the name of the country, then beside the catalog search box, pull down "Subject Headings Browse."
[See also the "References" or "Note" button if it is available, once the screen opens with the Subject Headings]
Search Other Libraries
If we do not have an item, you can search for it in other libraries and fill out and Interlibrary Loan request on our Interlibrary Services page. If you need help with this process, please contact the librarian.
The Subject Headings used on this page are used in most academic libraries, so you can also use them to search other university libraries' catalogs.
