Subject Headings

Subject Headings are a "Controlled Vocabulary" that help you find all the books on a particular subject. If you find a relevant subject heading for your research topic in our catalog, you can also use it in many indexed databases (e.g., Academic Search) to find journal articles.

See the list below for some examples of subject headings related to this course. Search Blais (see box to the left) for other subjects not listed here.

HINT: If you see a good subject heading on a topic, try adding the name of the country you are researching.

ILL & Link+

Although the library has access to a lot of material, we don't have everything. If you find a reference to a book or article we do not have, request it via Interlibrary Loan (ILL) or Link+.

Link+ is for books we don't have and takes about 2-3 days.

ILL is for journal articles we don't have and books Link+ doesn't have. For journal articles it usually doesn't take more than 2-3 days, books can take up to a week or longer to arrive.
