Books

Use the library catalogue to search for relevant books, printed versions of journals and newspapers etc.

 

To find books on a particular subject, use a keyword search on the library catalogue. For example:

Contemporary drama

Shakespeare plays

Keyword searching often retrieves a large number of results. You might want to limit your search by adding more words from your keyword list; for example:

Contemporary drama monologues

Shakespeare plays henry v


Browse through the records retrieved and look at the hyperlinked subject descriptions that come with each catalogue record, e.g.

Acting - auditions

Shakespeare, William, 1564-1614, Histories

You can then click on a subject description to find more material with the same subject. Note that not all the results will be books; there may be other media such as CDs, DVDs or music scores.

Don't forget that you can have books sent from other branch libraries to your campus for pick-up

Start with major bibliographies to easily give you a topic overview:
