Finding Books

Use TRIPOD BOOKS AND MORE  to find books, journals (but not articles within them), and videos owned by the Tri-College libraries.

Use WorldCat to find books not held by the Tri-College libraries.

In order to find books in either catalog, search for topics in the following ways:

       Keyword Search:

E.g.,     (bricolage OR pastiche) AND (postmodern OR subcultur*)   [Use the asterisk to get root words with different endings- subculture and subcultures.  Use capitals for OR and AND to build subject groups]

             "structural functionalism"    [Put phrases in quotation marks to get results only with the words together]

(See the Search Tips tab for more information on how to construct keyword searches.)


      Subject Search:

E.g.,     Sociology History


            Hermeneutics History

           (Use the Browse Books & More link to find additional subject headings.)
