How to find eBooks in the Library Catalog
Find Books by Subject
After you find a useful book in the library catalog, scroll down to the "Details" tab to the book's "Subjects." Here you'll find a list of related subjects that you might consider adding to your search. You can also click on a subject link in the record; clicking on a subject such as "Older people -- Care" would bring up a list of all the Library's books, journals, and other resources on that topic.
