Finding Books for Your Research

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.

Examples of Subject Headings:

Right to health -- United States -- History

Health services accessibility -- United States -- History

Health care rationing -- United States -- History

If Brandeis does not have the book you need, try looking for books from other libraries. Brandeis WorldCat is a library catalog that contains millions of records for books and other materials held in libraries worldwide. Search for your item and then use the "Request Item from Interlibrary Loan" button or link on the item page to place your request.
