The Library Catalog is the gateway to all information resources located in the Rutgers University Libraries. Use keywords--Title Keywords or Subject Keywords-- to search for the appropriate materials. Some examples:
Searches using Library of Congress Subject Headings can yield more targeted results. Subject headings can be further narrowed by adding location: (United States or Canada), aspect: (government policy, economic aspects, social aspects), or population: (women, Hispanic-Americans, Asia). Examples:
To find other Library of Congress Subject Headings, type in (“Emigration and immigration”) in the search box, select “Subject begins with” from the drop-down menu under the search box. “Emigration and immigration” will be the top choice. Also look under the “Try these too” in the list on the right.
