Searching for Books

You can find books in the UToledo Library Catalog using either keywords for your topic, or using Subject Headings such as those listed below. 

Searching by keyword allows you to find words mentioned in book titles, chapter titles, subjects, and author names.  Keyword searches can be combined to find books on two or more topics using AND or OR.  Searching by Subject Heading is more precise, but searches for broad topics in the book.  See the UToledo Library Catalog Guide for more information about searching.

Some subject headings you may want to start at include the following.  Some will have cross references to other related topics, and most will have sub-headings for more specific topics, formats, or geographic areas:
