Library catalog

Keyword searches in the library catalog will yield many results, some useful, some not, but don't be afraid to do a Subject (browse) search.  [Most records for an item in the catalog will have subject headings attached, which will help guide you to similar, additional books and other materials.] Subject headings, or terms, are organized in a particular way, and can be specific people, movements, phenomena, topics, etc., and are often sub-divided geographically and by time period.
