Keyword Searching

Every book in print owned by STLCC Libraries is listed in the STLCC Library Catalog.  Each listing is called a record.  A powerful way to search for books on a particular topic is to perform a keyword search, which looks for records containing the words you use in your search. Example keyword searches:

  1. baking and profess*
  2. restaurant and manag*
  3. sanitation and food

NOTE: The asterisk (*) truncates a term and will retrieve all forms of the word that follow the truncation symbol. For example, manag* will retrieve managed, managing, management, etc. 

Subject Searching

Library of Congress (LC) subject headings are special, standardized words and phrases which describe the primary subject(s) on which a book focuses.  Searching by subject heading rather than by keyword often allows you to look for books on a particular topic more efficiently. 

Since LC subject headings are included in a book's catalog record, looking at the records you get from a keyword search can help you identify appropriate subject headings. Ask A Librarian for help with LC subject searching.

Below are a few examples of other subject headings you will find in the STLCC Catalog.
