Begin in the STLCC Catalog to find books in the library. The two basic methods for searching are the keyword and the subject searches.
The subject search is somewhat misleading--it only searches for subjects as defined by the Library of Congress.
Because most library users are not familiar with the official Library of Congress Subject Headings, it is often a good idea to begin with a keyword search.
Some examples of keyword searches include
NOTE: The asterisk (*) truncates a term and will retrieve all forms of the word that follow the truncation symbol. For example, photograph* will retrieve photograph, photographs, photography, photographer, and photographers. The asterisk can also be used as a wildcard for an unknown letter, as in cemet*ry, etc.
Results from your keyword searches will help you identify appropriate subject headings. Below are some subject headings found with the keyword search "propaganda and World War II":
St. Louis Community College Libraries
Florissant Valley Campus Library
Forest Park Campus Library
Meramec Campus Library
Wildwood Campus Library
