Books can serve as a solid foundation for a research paper. They can provide depth and coverage to a topic. Use OneSearch to find books. When looking at a book, be sure to browse the bibliography or reference list and identify titles of interest. You can look for books you find in OneSearch or check for a journal name by clicking the Journal Titles A-Z tab on the left of the homepage below Resources & Collections Library's homepage. 


EUREKA -Sacramento State Library Catalog Search

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.
