Try exploring the Library Catalog for books related to your topic. If Brandeis does not have a book you need, you can use WorldCat to search for books from other libraries and then request these books through Interlibrary Loan.
Search tip: Search for books by either Keywords or Subject Headings. Start with a Keyword search and identify some relevant books. Then look at the subject headings for those books. You can follow the subject heading links in the catalog to find similar books, or you can use the terms in the subject headings to identify other keywords to try.
For a broad search, start the Articles & More tab of the Library's OneSearch. The Articles & More tab searches across many of our subscription academic databases to find individual articles from journals, newspapers, magazines, and more.
For a more focused searched, try one of these recommended databases:
Depending on the focus of your research, you may also want to explore some subject-specific databases. For example, if you are researching a singer, you may want to try a database focused on music. If you are researching an author, you may want to choose a database focused on literary criticism.
