Example of a Scholarly Book
Use an Author Search for books by a literary author and a Subject Search for books about a literary author:
Author: Dick, Philip K.
Subject: Dick, Philip K.
To search for a subject when the terminology is not known, first search by keyword, then look for relevant records and, using the full record of a book, see if there are any relevant Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) to further your search.
Keyword Search: virtual reality gaming
LCSH: Computer games
Potentially Useful Library of Congress Subject Headings:
science fiction postmodernism (subject keywords)
This Library of Congress Classification Outline holds true for any library in the world using the LC system. For example, British iterature will be classed in the PRs & American Literature is classed in the PSs.
