Library catalogs to search

If you're looking for books, DVDs, CDs, and/or other physical items to check out and take home, you can search for them in:

  • AU Library's online catalog
  • OhioLINK online catalog
  • SearchOhio online catalog

You should look first in AU Library catalog. Then, if our library doesn't own what you're looking for, continue searching the OhioLINK online catalog and, if necessary, the SearchOhio online catalog.

Library of Congress subject headings

The following is a list of exact Library of Congress subject headings. Some are very specific while others are more general.

Knowing the exact subject heading can be very helpful because it aids you in finding those resources that are most closely connected to your research topic. It also means that when you get into AU Library's online catalog or the OhioLINK online catalog you can use the SUBJECT HEADING search option--in other words, you'll be searching the subject headings in catalog records rather than using the more general KEYWORD search option.
