RELI 2356 The Qur'an

Searching the Catalog

Search for books in our library on your topic in one of two ways:

Use Catalog Quick Search on the main page to search for any occurrence of the terms in the book's description: within the title, subject headings, contents notes, and more. This is best when you don't have a good idea of the best subject terms for your topic. The drawback is that you'll sometimes get matches on the terms that don't match your use of those terms.

NOTE that the catalog usually uses the term "Koran" in the subject field, even though many books will use "Qur'an" in the title. 


TIP: Note that once you find a good book by keyword, you can scan its assigned subject headings (or tags) and click on any of them that look useful. 


Use Subject Search to look for books listed under subject headings assigned by catalogers to the books. If your search matches the subject headings, you'll have a nice breakdown of the titles under similar subjects. If you don't match anything, try other subject terms or try a keyword search.
