Library of Congress Subject Headings

When searching Dominican's online catalog for books about Children's Literature, begin by using the following Library of Congress Subject Headings.  Subject headings will do much of your work for you because they classify titles that are related topically under the same heading.  Since you can approach this or any other topic from numerous vantage points, you'll also be able to glean additional LC subject headings from the catalog records of featured books provided in the column to the left of this box.  But you don't need to limit yourself to subject headings.  You can also combine keywords that may retrieve other resources.  For example, by combining "children" and "psychology" in a keyword search, you may find materials you might otherwise have missed using a more narrowly focused subject search.  Try it and see.  Finding such titles, of course, will also lead you to new subject headings you might not have thought of using before.  Play with the system in creative ways and it will work for you!
