Catalog Search

To locate books on specific topics, search the Library Catalog. Begin with a keyword search (e.g. "cotton fabrics," "fashion design," "green design and textile"); Use the truncation symbol to retrieve alternate forms of a word (e.g., textile* and environment* will find textile or textiles and environment, environmental, environmentally, etc.). Click on a title of interest and follow the subject heading links in the cataloging record to locate other books on the same topic.
