Finding Books in Boatwright Library

To search for books in Boatwright, use the Library Catalog.  Start with a keyword search and when you have found one or two relevant books, examine their subjects headings to help guide further searching, or use terms from the table of subject headings to the left. You can also use descriptive terms such as "politics and government," "social life," "customs," "culture," "economic relations," "colonization," or "travel."

If you are looking for information on a person, you should first use that person's name in a keyword search or a subject heading search (reverse first and last names for this kind of search, e.g. Stanley, Henry).  However, many books will have information on persons that is not evident from the information in the catalog.  To find these books, you should use the browsing guide on the left and scan the tables of contents and indexes of books in the appropriate call number area.
