A Subject Search allows you to search for books within a particular subject. With this search, simply type in your subject and hit the "Search" button.
1. Your search results are by subject. The number by the subject is the number of books we have on that particular topic. Click on the link to see the books.
2. You may notice that you receive a very large number of subjects when you do your search. Using library defined subject headings will greatly narrow your search results down. However since you often don't know the library subject heading, being as specific as possible usually helps.
