GEO 312: World Economic Geography: Finding Books


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 ("economic development")
    • Truncation – use ? after the root of a word to find all its variants (geograph? finds geography, geographic, geographer...)
    • Browse the Subject(s) field in records to find the right words for searches. (Example: Try doing a keyword search for "transnational corporations," then look at the subject(s) field in several records. You’ll see that the subject term is "International business enterprises." Click the subject heading to find more records with this subject.)
  • Revise and refine your searches.
  • 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.

Suggested search terms:

"regional economic disparities"
"economic development" [country name or region e.g. afghanistan, "south america"]
"space in economics"
