Search with Subject Headings

To find a targeted pool of relevant materials, try searching by subject heading. Subject headings are the terms that explain who, what, when, and where a resource is about. Much like tags on a website or blog, these headings let you know what a resource is about and help you to find other resources that are also about this same topic. 

Finding American Studies resources by subject: You can copy and paste these example headings right into a catalog search for LC Subjects.
