Worldcat@SU 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 online catalog yields over many titles on your topics. 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.
A few examples of select subject headings relevant to this class are below. Each is a live link directly into the online catalog.
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.
