Subject Searching

Results from your keyword searches will help you identify appropriate subject headings. Below are some subject headings found with the keyword search "fast food":

  1. Fast Food Restaurants
  2. Convenience Foods
  3. Obesity

Keyword Searching

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

  1. fast food AND nutrition
  2. junk food AND child*
  3. obes* AND (child* or teen*)
  4. fast food and cancer

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.
