FYS: Unsilencing the Past: Stories from the Borderlands: WorldCat

WorldCat Search Widget


WorldCat is the library's online catalog. Use it to identify printed and electronic books that we own as well as videos, CD's, DVD's, and more. A search by title in the WorldCat online catalog yields over many titles on this broad topic. If you find an item that we don't own that you need for your research, use Get it! and we will get the item from a library that does own it. 

Searching any database requires an understanding of how subject headings are used to describe and organize the items listed. Entering a subject phrase that is not used in a particular database will keep you from finding what you need even if the item is there. A few scattered examples of select subject headings relevant to this class are provided below. Always ask a librarian for help if you are not finding what you need--it may simply be a matter of using the right vocabulary.
