Tips for Searching the Library Catalog

A search in All Fields performs a keyword search in all fields of all item records

This search is not the most accurate, but it does produce the largest number of results

Enter a play, poem, or short story title as an All Fields search to find collected works or anthologies that contain the title

A search in Subject performs a keyword search in the subject fields of all item records

This search is a more precise search for finding items about your topic - it searches Library of Congress subject headings to provide more accurate search results

Enter an author's name (last name, first name) as a Subject search to find works about that author such as biographies and literary criticism

Enter a keyword (country name, historical period, etc.) as a Subject search to find works about that term

A search in Author performs a keyword search in the author fields of all item records

Enter an author's name (last name, first name) as an Author search to find all works by that author
