Keyword searches

Use the library's catalog to search for books.

You can perform a simple search on the catalog's home page, which is a search using one keyword.  This is helpful when you want to browse through a large amount of results.

You can use the Advanced Search for more complicated searches with multiple keywords.  Use one box for each keyword and use the filters below to narrow your search further, if you need to.

Please note this is an experimental catalog, though it is often a good choice for finding available books.  You can also try the standard library catalog.  Please contact me with problems searching using either catalog.

Subject searches

One particularly useful search is a Subject Search, using subject headings as your search terms.  Change the "All Fields" option in the dropdown menu to "Subject" to perform a subject search.

Subjects in the library catalog use a specific set of terms, or a controlled vocabulary.  The easiest way to figure out what subjects to search for is to find a book that seems relevant to your research and look at the subjects in its catalog record, listed under Subject.  Click on these to see all the books listed under that subject.

Rice -- Southeast Asia

Foreign Workers -- Southeast Asia
