Start from the Rubenstein Library Homepage and your search will automatically be limited to what the Rubenstein has.
Once you've entered your search, there are a couple of ways you can narrow down the results to make it easier to find useful materials. On the left side there are options to filter your results - including format (you may only be interested in books) and language.
On the right side of the page there is a dropdown menu that lets you choose how your results are organized. Depending on your topic, you'll probably be interested in the earliest books we have on a particular subject, so choose Pub Date (Oldest) to see those first.
If you haven’t used subject headings in the catalog before, they’re sort of tags given by librarians to books using a standardized vocabulary, making it easy to find more books on the same topic.
