FYE 1036: Myths, Fairy Tales and Fantasy

Poor, poor, little Alice! She has not only been caught and made to do lessons; she has been forced to inflict lessons on others.”
-Gilbert K. Chesterson

Books in the Main Stacks

You can search for books in the library in a number of ways:

Subject search: Mythology, Greek
finds any book on a certain subject BUT “subjects” are defined by the Library of Congress (so it’s Mythology, Greek not Greek Mythology)

Title search: Homer
finds any book with that word in the title (a quick way to find out if your topic has been covered in books)

Keyword search: “middle earth”
finds your keywords anywhere in the catalog description of the book (usually this search is the broadest as it will pick up even minor mentions of your topic). Put quotes around phrases for more accurate results.

Think about the ways you could describe your topic and try searching by those keywords in the library catalog.
