Subject Headings

Library of Congress Subject Headings are the words and phrases that you will use to do a subject search in the catalog (as opposed to a keyword search). Although Economics is a broad Library of Congress Subject Heading, you will probably get better results if you are more specific. To search for the economic conditions of Oregon, the proper subject heading is actually "Oregon--Economic".  If you are looking for books about the economic conditions of the entire United States, then the proper heading is "United States--Economic".  Be careful in your choice of words--some words and phrases that are natural to you will not be valid as Library of Congress Subject Headings.

It is often helpful to do a keyword search on your topic first.  Once you find an appropriate source, look at the subject headings and click the linked subject heading in the catalog.
