Catalog searches

  • From the library home page, open the library catalog
  • If you have the title of a specific document collection, you can search the library catalog for that title.
  • Alternatively, to browse for primary sources, enter a Library of Congress Subject Heading and then select the Subject Browse category from the drop-down menu. Look for subheadings such as sources, archives, correspondence, papers, diaries, etc.
  • Example: "Cold War > History > Sources" in Subject Browse (A-Z). Note: If there is published material on an individual, their name is an LC Subject Heading, e.g. Dulles, John Foster in Subject Browse (A-Z)
