Subject headings

Subject headings are words or groups of words under which books, journal articles, or other materials on a given subject are listed in a library catalog or database. Lists of subject headings generally include cross references from subordinate terms to primary terms and notes defining what is included within the scope of a given term. These lists of pre-defined, controlled subject terms are particularly helpful when searching databases. (See also Library of Congress subject headings, thesaurus)

Newman Library tour options

Self-guided audio tour

Our primary tour option for individuals is a self-guided, audio tour with a graded quiz that can be used to show attendance for classes that require participation or give extra credit. Locations and services are highlighted, and the tour takes about an hour. You can use your mobile device or check out an iPad from the Circulation Desk.
