Subject Searching

Another valuable way to search library catalogs and research databases is to look for SUBJECT HEADINGS!

What are subject headings?

The main theme(s) or topic(s) of an item

Library catalogs records and research database results usually include a section called subject(s)subject heading(s),subject term(s) or something similar.  These subject listings are usually links.  Look for subject headings that work for your topic, click on that link and access other items that have the same subject heading!  It's that simple!
