HY 442: Research Seminar in European History - Modern European Borderlands: Books

SOUTHcat

To find books and government documents in USA Libraries' collections, use SOUTHcat: USA Libraries' Catalog.

  • Catalog tips and tricks:
    • Keyword searches – use quotation marks to hold phrases together ("social condition?")
    • Truncation – use ? after the root of a word to find all its variants (antisemit? would find antisemite or antisemitism)
    • Browse the Subject(s) field in records to find the right words for searches. (Example: Try doing a keyword search for anti-semit? 1920s, then look at the subject(s) field in several records. You’ll see that the subject terms could be "antisemitism-Poland-20th century." or "antisemitism-Germany-20th century."  Click the subject heading to find more records with the subject.
  • Revise and refine your searches. Combine words or phrases.
  • Watch for repeating call numbers and browse stacks in that area.
  • Pay attention to the Location and Status fields. You will need this information to locate the item in the library.

Some selected search terms:
