To find books on a particular subject, use a keyword search on the library catalogue. For example:
Keyword searching often retrieves a large number of results. You can limit your search by using AND and adding more keywords to retrieve resources that have both words in the record. For example:
crime AND custody
prison AND social control
Use OR to broaden your search to find material related to similar keywords in the one search:
(prison OR custody) AND offenders AND rehabilitation
Refer to the Help on keyword searching for tips on how to search on the library catalogue effectively. These tips also work with databases.
