Catalog and OhioLINK

The library catalog can be used to find books by keyword and subject on your topic.

In a subject search, for example, notice that there are many results for general subject heading searches such as "Music History",  and "Music and Technology".  There are also multiple subject categories covering particular time periods, geographic regions, specific subjects, resource types, .. etc.

General subjects, title words and keywords for searching (including exact phrase searching with quotation marks) might include:

You can also refine your catalog searches by using the Advanced Search mode for the online library catalog and applying some limits, such as a publication date range, wildcard symbols, geographic region, and additional topical keyword terms.  And, make sure to apply these searching principles as you gather information about your topic:


Also remember that using the "Search OhioLINK" button will expand your search.  This is very useful if you need a book when our copy is unavailable, or if Case Libraries does not own a specific book that you need.

You can also use Search OhioLINK if you want to expand your keyword or subject heading search from our holdings to those of the larger OhioLINK consortium.

And, you can apply the same search refinements and limits in OhioLink as you would in the Case Libraries online catalog.
