It's hard to know where to start.
Subject searching uses the specialised subject headings assigned by the Library, which can be hard to determine. It finds subject headings that start with the words you type in.
On the Subject Search page, type as much or as little of the subject as you want:
A simple way to access catalogue subject headings is to start with a keyword search. Once you have found a relevant book, you can click the Subject links to find more resources on the same topic
If the subject is a person, type the family name first:
Subject search may not find older material, especially items received before 1971. For such material try a Keyword or Advanced search.
