Tips to Take Away

Finding Books

The first place to check for books on your topic is the Library Catalog, which is also called Books & More.  Here are some quick tips for effective catalog searches:

If you are looking for books by a writer whose name you know, use the Author/Creator search (last name first).

If you want books about an author, use the Subject search (last name first).

Here are some subject headings you may find useful:

  • Spain - Civilization - 711-1516
  • Spain - History - 711-1516
  • Spain - Social Life and Customs
  • Spanish literature
  • Spain--Politics and government--to 1479
  • Muslims - Spain - History
  • Seville (Spain) - Social Conditions

 

Of course, you can also use keyword searches.
