Searching the Collection

An easy way to start searching the Library catalog is to do a keyword search for words that describe your topic. You may need to experiment with keywords to find ones that work for your topic. Try a keyword search for phlebotomy. Once you find some items, you can use subject headings to find other items that cover the same topic.

Use these subject headings to browse the collection.
