Searching Books and Media
Worldcat@SU is the catalog in which you can search for books, articles, videos, and other items in Smith Library Center, all at the same time.
- add quotation marks around the terms you're searching so the whole phrase will be found.
Use the subject heading hyperlinks
- within individual records to see other items classified under that same heading. Subject headings are standardized tags that describe the content of an item. You can use these tags to find material on the same topic regardless of the words used in the material’s text.
Books on the Genome and Genetic Research
Worldcat@SU finds books that are available at Smith Library AND books you can access from libraries and collections around the world through Get It!
Get It!: Interlibrary loan and acquisitions requests
For items we don't own, our library can either borrow the item from another library or purchase it for the collection.
The first time you use Get It!, you'll need to sign up for an account with your Southwestern ID and password.
