HIST 040: Comparative Women's History: Find Books and Articles

A guide for students in HIST040 designed to help with final paper assignments

Find Books

When searching Orbis you can search by keyword or subject heading. Subject headings offer you a controlled vocabulary for searching the online catalog. The subject headings allow you to more quickly and easily identify books that are most relevant to what you are searching. The challenge is locating the appropriate and relevant subject headings for your topics.

To search by subject using the term, women, you will still get hundreds of results. Try narrowing your subject terms more by clicking on the "More Info" button next to the subject heading women or browsing the subject terms. Talking to a librarian will help you identify appropriate subject terms quickly.
