Catalog Search Tips--Books and Media

Search the catalogs to find books relevant to your research (use the databases to find journal articles). You can use the box below to search the "Books And More" tab of the OSUL catalog by keyword, title, or author. If you're not sure where to begin, try searching by keyword (s); sample keyword searches appear in the box on the right to help you get the hang of it. You can also search for films and videos this way.

When you've found a relevant book, click on the Subjects links located at the bottom of he book record to find other books about the topic. Subject headings use the controlled vocabulary of the Library of Congress to help you locate specific materials. For example, the subjects associated with the ebook Practicing disability studies in education: acting toward social change (2015) are: 

Disability studies
Inclusive education
Sociology of disability
Special education
Students with disabilities -- Education
