Books in the TriCo Libraries
- Search by the subject headings you find in the book's Tripod record--this will help you find other books on the same topic, classified with the same subject heading. (view example)
- Consult the book's bibliography and use Tripod and library databases to track down some of the sources that author cited.
How to Use Subject Headings:
Sample subject headings include:
These subject headings are broad, but can help you identify more focused subheadings, such as "Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) Germany Influence."
To search directly for a subject heading, go to Tripod and change the drop-down menu from "Keyword" to "Subject." Enclose the subject heading in double quotes and then search.
Books Beyond the TriCo Libraries
To find books that are not owned by the TriCo libraries, search by keywords and/or subject headings in WorldCat, and make interlibrary loan or EZ-Borrow requests. Whenever possible, try to make your interlibrary loan requests early in the semester, to ensure that the books arrive with enough time left to write your paper.
