Tips for seaching the catalog:

  • USE simple words or phrases, like "gothic architecture" or "medieval reliquary."
  • AVOID typing in long phrases. (See what happens when you type in "Why did the Gothic style flourish in religious architecture?")
  • When you find a useful book, check its catalog record for subject headings which will link you to other books on the same topic.  Or, try using the subject headings listed on the left-side margin of this page.
