Citing your work

Searching For Information in Our Library Catalog

Think about keywords related to medicine or health in general, or a specific issue, to start your search in the library's WorldCat catalog. 

When you find a good item, open the Description section of the record to find more publications on the topic using the Subject Headings. Clicking on a Subject Heading will take you to a list of all the other books in the catalog that have been classified under that subject. 

Subject Headings

Subject Headings are categories that libraries use to organize information, namely books in our online catalog, WorldCat@SU. Clicking on any of these subject headings will take you to a list of titles in WorldCat@SU that are relevant to that topic. Ask a librarian for assistance with searching or using subject headings if you need it.
