Browsing Book Titles Using Subject Headings

When you conduct a search using an appropriate subject heading (Library of Congress Subject Headings) that fits your research topic, it can help you deliver much focused results rather than doing a simple keyword(s) search.

  1. Start with keyword(s) search.   Limit you results to Books by selecting "Books" from Resource Type in the left column.   
  2. Browse your results.
  3. Select the one title that fits your research objective.
  4. Scroll down the details of the record.
  5. Study headings under "Subjects."
  6. Study all headings being used as they represent the topics covered in the book.
