Library Catalog: Subject

This guide will explain how to use the Library Catalog to search for various types of material available from the Library searching by keyword, subject, author, etc.

Subject Search

Subject search retrieves materials by Library of Congress subject heading.

These subject headings are very specific, but you don't have to be to get started! 

What you type in will bring up a list of more specific subject headings - which makes it easier to narrow down your search.

If you do not find enough records using the Subject index, try searching by Keyword. Then, when you find records that match your search, you may want to click on some of the subject headings listed in those records.
