How do I find books on a particular subject?

The best way to find books on a particular subject is to do a keyword search in the  Aladin catalog. 

A keyword search allows you to find books on a particular subject without knowing the title or author of a book. 

For example, if I wanted to find a book on nursing during the Civil War, I could do a keyword search using those terms: "nursing" and "Civil War." 

For more information on doing keyword searches, see this website:

If you're having trouble please stop by the Reference Desk on the 5th floor of the library, or send us an email or chat.
