Academic Research Resources
Destiny-Library Catalog (leaves EHS website):
Search the library collection online to find books, eBooks, audiobooks, and websites. Search by a Keyword, Title, Author, Subject, or a Series.
Keyword Search vs Subject Search
Keyword searches are similar to Internet searches, in that the catalog/database will look for the words you use wherever they may be on a page. Regardless of whether the word is in a title, author name, place of publication, the page will be returned as a result.
Subject searches, on the other hand, only return results in which the subject term being searched appears in the subject field. However, if you choose a subject term which doesn't exist, then you will get none. If your subject search returns 'no results' then do a keyword search.
