1. Go to OneSearch.

 

2. Search by subject if you have a broad topic or know a specific Library of Congress subject heading.

  • Click on the "Advanced Search" link located to the right of the main search box in OneSearch.
     
  • Enter the subject and select the "Subject" option from the "Any field" drop-down menu located to the left of the first search line.

    Examples:
    global warming
    Mandela, Nelson
    California politics and government

     
  • After running the search, you may limit accordingly by selecting "Books" under the "Resource Type" section on the left-hand side of the results list. You may refine results further by using other available limiters on the left-hand side, including the "Subject" limiter.

 

3. Search by keyword if you have a more specific topic or wish to combine concepts.

  • Enter the keyword(s) in the OneSearch main search box.

    Examples:
    emergent readers
    personal computing AND periodicals
    immigra* AND women AND United States


    (Please note that immigra* includes terms such as immigrant and immigration)
     
  • After running the search, you may limit accordingly by selecting "Books" under the "Resource Type" section on the left-hand side of the results list. You may refine results further by using other available limiters on the left-hand side, including the "Subject" limiter.
