Library Catalog

In the library catalog Onesearch , you can search books by title, author, subject or keywords.  You can also use Browse  for  subject search, author, title, and call numbers.

Keyword Searching:
  • Searches only for the words, not the concepts.
  • Is often the best search to do initially, until you know what the Subject terms are.
  • Can be used in conjunction with an outline to conceptualize a topic.

Subject Searching:
  • Searches the concept (as defined by the Library of Congress Subject Headings)
  • Is often better done when the keyword search isn't garnering material appropriate to the topic.
  • May take more work, but will yield better results than a keyword search.
