Subject headings are standardized terms used to describe materials in library catalogs. Use them for more precise and targeted searching and to cross-reference items in the catalog.
Here are some examples. Enter them into the Subject tab in the Voyager catalog to browse related terms and items categorized under that heading. Using Advanced Search, try combining a subject search with an additional keyword.
Use the online research databases below to identify scholarly, peer-reviewed articles. There are different kinds of databases: discipline-specific (deep subject coverage and specialized indexing) and interdisciplinary (broad coverage of many areas). In your research, you should consult multiple databases. How does the coverage of your topic differ across various resources?
Some databases contain the full-text of articles; others contain only citations or a mix of full-text and citations. If the full-text is not available in the database, look for the button to check if we have the article in the library.
