AAAD 259 - Black Influences in Popular Culture: Finding Books




Useful Tips

Tip 1: Once you have located a book on your topic click on the subject headings of the catalog record. This can lead you to additional books on the same topic.

Tip 2: Look to see if the catalog record has a summary or table of contents of the book and is available in other editions.

Tip 3: If a record says, Full text available via the UNC-Chapel Hill Libraries, it is usually available online.

Tip 4: When doing keyword searching, try combining keywords/phrases. 

Searching the Catalog

Start with a keyword search in the catalog. Once you have located a relevant item, you can look at the Library of Congress Subject Headings within the full record tab and follow those links to find related books.

You can also refine your results by using the facets on the left side of the screen. If you are looking for online sources only, narrow down your search by clicking the box next to the "available online" facet.
