Identifying Relevant Books

Use the Tripod catalog for your home institution  Icon   Icon     to look for all books (print and digital) owned by your college as well as the print titles at the other two schools.  

The following searches are a sampling of possibilities.  To find materials on a topic, try doing a keyword search in the Tripod Catalog to find relevant materials and then use the subject headings assigned to those titles to find more books.  Note that all these searches are in the Books+Media channel.  In examples #1 and 4 below, using keywords (in Tripod called In Any Field) rather than subjects to pick up results from chapter titles.

  • "black feminism" [in Any Field]  In Books+Media   Icon   Icon   

  • "african american feminists" [Subject]   Icon   Icon   

  • gender* AND "human rights" [Subjects]  Sorted by the newest titles first  Icon   Icon   

  • history AND "united states" [Subjects] AND ("same sex" OR gays OR lesbian* OR queer OR transexual* OR homosexual*) AND interview* [Keywords]    Icon   Icon

Beyond the Tri-College Collections
