SPAN 327: Hispanic Women: Finding Books

Find Books

Catalog searching tips

  • Subject Search:
    To find materials written ABOUT your subject. 
    • When viewing items, change Sort to “Reverse Year” to see newest items at top.
    • Search by last name first, then first name.
  • Author Search:
    To find materials written BY your subject.
    • Search by last name first, then first name.
  • Keyword Search
    •  Will provide mix of materials that include your keywords.
    • Will reveal materials that may not have appeared through author or subject search (e.g., if your subject was listed in the Table of Contents). 
    •  Use additional search terms such as "tourism" (in addition to your country's name) to help narrow your results.
