Tips for Searching the Catalog
- To locate the actual catalog from the FSU Libraries' home page, click on the "Catalog Search" option at the top right of the page under the search box. It should take you to this page.
- Try finding relevant materials by selecting "Subject Heading" from the drop down menu in the Advanced Search or in the catalog embedded above for this guide. Examples of subject headings for Sociology can be broad as seen with "Sociology" or "Social Institutions", or more precise with headings like "Human Rights" or "Family & Marriage".
- For information on how to get the most out of your search using quotation marks, Boolean operators, and asterisks, visit the LibGuide for ENC 2135.
