Our library's Books & eBooks Catalog uses "subject headings" to help researches locate books that are about similar topics.   Each book is assigned at least one subject heading.  Searching within subject headings is a good way to quickly narrow down your search.

  • To search by subject, use the drop-down menu next to the search box to select "Subject."  Then enter one or two keywords.  The catalog will search only within subject headings for your keywords.
