Swem Catalog Search

Use the library catalog to search for books.

Sample Basic Searches:

Title Enter title without beginning "A", "An", "The"
Author Enter last name, then first (e.g. Einstein, Albert)

Good for starting a search for books on a topic; then use
subject headings on relevant records to find more.

Subject Tricky! Need to know Library of Congress subject headings.
