Finding Word Books in ALICE

ALICE (and other library catalogs) use predefined words and phrases, called Subject Terms or Subject Headings, to describe the contents of non-fiction books. These are kind of like tags that are often used in social media. They are an attempt to impose a certain amount of order to the process of locating books on your topic.

  • The examples below use Spanish; by all means substitute the name(s) of the language(s) you're working with in place of Spanish.
  • The sample links below go to ALICE; be sure to continue searching in OhioLINK if you need more.
